Almost three-quarters (71.4%) of Listowel businesses are reporting a drop in footfall due to changes in parking.
Two-thirds (66.7%) are in favour of a return to two hour paid parking, which was in place across all street parking before July.
That’s according to a survey of 21 businesses by Listowel Business & Community Alliance, on the impact of Kerry County Council’s COVID-19 Mobility Plan to create social distancing.
Businesses say customers are reluctant to park in new set down spaces, as bollards make parking more difficult.
Colette O'Connor from Listowel Business & Community Alliance says they’ve sent the survey results to Kerry County Council, and hope they’ll review the Mobility Plan.
The full results of the survey are available on Listowel.ie
