29 August 2014 - NPPR Charge Grace Period Deadline 31st August 2014


Donegal County Council advises that making contact with their offices or the NPPR Bureau by e-mail before the deadline can freeze any additional penalties that might otherwise come into effect on 1st September


The six month period during which further NPPR late penalties cease to accumulate in respect of non compliant properties is due to expire at midnight on Sunday 31st August 2014.


Persons wishing to settle their liability can still do so online at


Significant numbers have paid the NPPR liability since the 1st March and many more payments are being processed at present.


Donegal County Council is aware that many more people want to settle their NPPR liabilities before the expiry of the deadline on 31st August.


Some people may need to clarify aspects of the liability and as a consequence significant numbers of people are contacting Donegal County Council by telephone. Due to the huge increase in the numbers calling our offices, not all callers will get through and we apologise for this inconvenience.

To facilitate callers, Donegal County Council will be taking calls from 9am to 4pm on Saturday 30 August 2014.  To contact the Council on Saturday 30 August 2014 you must call one of the following numbers:

Although the Council will not be taking calls on Sunday 31 August 2014, callers can leave a voicemail message with their own contact details and details of the property they want to register at the following numbers:


  • 074 91 94245
  • 074 97 24409


Contact by Email

Any person who wishes to settle their NPPR liability and cannot get through to us by telephone can have further late penalties frozen by making contact with either the National Bureau by e-mail at or by e-mailing Donegal County Council at before the expiry of the deadline on 31st August indicating the property for which they want to settle the NPPR liability and giving their contact details.


Contact by Post

Any person who doesn’t have access to e-mail may correspond in writing with us at Donegal County Council, County House, Lifford, or to any of the Public Service Centres in Letterkenny, Milford, Dungloe, Donegal Town or Carndonagh by the deadline of 31st August.
