Calls For People To Respect Residential Parking In Estates

Posted by


A LOCAL councillor has called on the Council to do something about people parking in housing estates close to the town centre.

In a motion before the Tralee Municipal District meeting on Monday, Sinn Féin Cllr Deirdre Ferris asked the local authority to ensure that traffic wardens are sent to inspect long-term, non-resident parked cars in housing estates in Tralee town Centre.

She said residents are left without spaces and entrances to these estates are blocked as a result. In many cases she said these cars are left in the estate for the entire working day.

Cllr Ferris said there are cheap car parks and on-street parking for the public to use around the town.

In reply, Council management said the regulation of car parking spaces in residential areas is not included in the Tralee Parking Bye-Laws due to the genuine rights of both residents and visitors to park locally.

However, if there are particular areas of concern, the Council will consider erecting signage requesting members of the public to respect residential parking.

    The Council should do road marking of the allocated residential car parking space and number of the house.

    The Council council could retain ownership, regulate and lease if necessary.
