Possible permit parking for Sundayswell Road

The problem of people leaving their cars all day in one of Mullingar’s residential streets may have to be addressed by introducing parking permits.

Locals may have to pay €25 each for a residents permit, after the council concluded it may not be good value for money to put a ticketing machine at each end of the road.

Two machines would cost in the region of €11,000, the town manager told the meeting of Mullingar Town Council.

Declan Leonard said the council didn’t believe it would get a return on this investment.

The issue was raised in a motion put forward by Cllr Aidan Davitt, who said people availing of free all-day parking before going to work was a nuisance to residents.

Cllr Bill Collentine agreed, saying that people living there can’t actually park outside their own homes.

The issue is to be raised again at a future meeting of the town council.
