Pedestrianisation trials on Plunkett Street
The Killarney Municipal District of Kerry County Council is inviting submissions from members of the public as part of a review of the daytime pedestrianisation trials of Plunkett Street.
On the following occasions in 2018:
- From Saturday, 31 March to Monday, 9 April, both dates inclusive.
- From Friday, 11 May to Monday, 21 May, both dates inclusive
- From Friday, 29 June to Monday, 3 September, both dates inclusive.
Plunkett Street was closed to traffic between the hours of 11.00 am and 7.00am, seven days a week, on a trial basis.
Kerry County Council is now encouraging everyone including local businesses, community groups and the general public to have their say on how the pedestrianisation trials operated.
Cathaoirleach of the Killarney Municipal District, Cllr John Sheahan said: ‘We voted last March to introduce the trials of pedestrianisation on Plunkett Street, with the intention of assessing the impact on pedestrians, shoppers, motorists, and businesses. Now we would like to hear what the people of Killarney and further afield think about this matter.
‘This is an informal consultation with the public but I hope that people will engage with it before we, as elected councilors, decide on any future pedestrianisation system which might apply,’ he said.
Anyone with a submission, comment or observation should email firstname.lastname@example.org using Plunkett Street in the message line or write to the Killarney Municipal District Officer, Killarney Municipal District, Town Hall, Killarney before the deadline of Friday, 22nd February 2019.
