North Tipperary County Council has been urged to scrap pay parking in Roscrea. Cllr John Hogan told the council’s July meeting that it was “not working”.
He pointed out that there were three free parknig areas in the town at shopping centres. “Business is drifting there out of town. We should not have given free parking in these areas. We know that parking revenue is down and the town centre is suffering,” he said.
