NENAGH Town Council has introduced a novel parking initiative in an effort to alleviate the pressure on traders in the town.
To promote footfall Nenagh Town Council plan to introduce free street side parking prior to 10am (previously 8.30am).
The council will discuss the matter in detail at the January meeting of Nenagh Town Council, then alter the respective bye laws before advertising the proposed parking change. The council will also review the initiative after three months.
Nenagh Town Council decided to introduce the initiative at the budget meeting which took place last week.
The annual estimates of expenditure, presented by Town Manager Marcus O’Connor and Town Clerk Dónal Purcell, were adopted by Nenagh Town Council (proposed by Labour Councillor Virginia O’Dowd and seconded by Fianna Fáil’s Jimmy Moran) at last week’s budget meeting of Nenagh Town Council.
Mayor Virginia O’Dowd described the budget as “very fair” and despite an E86,536 reduction in the Local Government Fund that Nenagh Town Council had “endeavoured not to increase the pressure on local traders”.
