There will be no pay-and-display on-street parking charges in Westport.
That’s after councillors voted yesterday against the recommendation of Mayo County Council officers to introduce the controversial charges
The decision ends weeks of debate about whether to introduce on-street car parking charges to the town in order to bring it in line with other large towns in the county.
However, the general municipal allocation (GMA) to local community groups has been cut from €450,000 to €230,000 pending further negotiations.
Fianna Fail Cllr. Brendan Mulroy says there is more talking to be done but Westport parking charges have been voted off the table.
