Pay and display parking in Saggart and Newcastle?
When the plans were first announced I held a public meetings in both Saggart and Newcastleto hear the views of local residents and traders. The feedback I received both at the meeting and through the many phone calls to my office was that there is no urgent need for disk parking in Saggart and that a public carpark should be provided for the village of Newcastle before the Council consider asking people to pay for the limited spaces available.
I do understand that once the LUAS is up and running parking may become an issue in the village but feel that disk parking is not necessary just yet. I have submitted my objection to the Roads Department of South Dublin County Council for the immediate introduction of disk parking in Saggart village.
