Tralee business owners are to meet with the Town Manager and Kerry County Council later today.
The Save Tralee group aired their opinions at yesterday’s public meeting over the planned changes to Tralee Town Centre, including the reduction of the number of car parking spaces on Denny Street.
The Save Tralee group voiced their concerns over a number of proposed changes to Tralee Town Centre.
Among the proposed changes are the introduction of a two-way traffic system on Denny Street, the relocation of the taxi rank in the Mall to Denny Street, and the conversion of the Mall to a shared space.
Kerry County Council claims the works are part of a wider programme aimed at rejuvenating the town centre and making it safer for motorists and pedestrians alike.
Sinn Féin Councillor Pa Daly says the whole town of Tralee has suffered in recent years, and something needs to be changed.
Meanwhile, there was considerable opposition to the plans at yesterday’s public meeting.
Among those was Heather O’Sullivan, who is a trader in the town.
She says if the council move forward with the proposed plans, it will cause irreversible damage to the town.
