THE new by-laws on pay-parking in Ardee have gone on public display.

THE new by-laws on pay-parking in Ardee have gone on public display.

After the public have an opportunity to make submissions the by-laws will be brought before Ardee Town Council next month and then Louth County Council in January.

Mr Joe McGuinness, Director of Services, Louth County Council, has told members of Ardee Town Council that the first major review in 10 years will include every aspect of parking in the town.

The profits raised from parking revenue will - for the first time - be spent directly on the town.

They will be included in the town council budget and go towards a new age-friendly plan for Ardee.

The by-laws will include proposals for more long-stay and short-stay parking.

The proposed new prices will reflect the new parking restrictions: 20 cent for long-stay parking, 60 cent for immediate stay, 80 cent for short-stay.

The long-stay will be in all car parks and the church at John Street.

The short-stay will be at Market Street and Castle Street.
