Kerry County Council has issued a new set of draft proposals on possible locations for casual trading in Kenmare.
The local authority previously published proposals for the extinguishing of market rights and drafting Casual Trading Byelaws in Kenmare, which was the subject of objections and legal proceedings. Kerry County Council is now engaging in a consultation process to seek consensus on a number of options on possible locations for casual trading. A meeting was held with Kenmare Chamber of Commerce recently, which was attended by the South & West Municipal District Engineer. The council says it hopes to get a reasonable consensus among all parties and a desired outcome that will benefit all and enhance the town. Subject to this it hopes to finalise the draft bye-laws for formal consultation within the next three months when submissions will be invited from the public. Rate payers in Kenmare have been presented with two proposed locations. A meeting on the issue was held by members of Kenmare Marketing and Events Group.
