Question: Councillor D. Smith “To ask the Chief Executive to examine the pedestrian accessibility on the path between between Carlton Court and Pennys in particular for people with disabilities and can any measures be put in place to improve accessibility and stop any casual parking on the path?”

Reply: The location referred to in the Question has been examined and on occasion there is some indiscriminate parking on the footpath outside the dry cleaners, however, measures to prevent parking on the footpath cannot be put in place as access to an area of private footpath fronting the dry cleaners has to be maintained. It is an offence under the Road Traffic Act to park a vehicle on a public footpath and any enforcement is a matter for An Garda Siochana.
