Calls for car park in Borrisokane

Calls for car park in Borrisokane

Calls have been made for the

development of a car park in Borrisokane.

Cllr Joe Hannigan (Ind) says the town

will lose around 30 car parking spaces on its Nenagh side resulting

from the plan to resurface the main street. He told last week's

meeting of Nenagh Municipal District that a car park is needed to

cover this loss. Cllr Hannigan praised the council for recent

remedial works carried out on the main street.

Cllr Ger Darcy (FG) agreed that there

is an opportunity to acquire property for a car park in Borrisokane.

He appreciated that this would require funding but said the council

should at least consider it.

Director of Services Marcus O'Connor

did not feel that a car park is necessary in Borrisokane. The town is

not losing 30 “legal car parking spaces”, he said.

Providing a car park would involve

significant investment and running costs, and there is no provision

for this in the current scheme. But Mr O'Connor said the council

would be looking at the parking situation again once the resurfacing

project is complete.
