Buncrana councillor calls for waiving of parking charges

Buncrana Town Council is being asked to waive parking charges in the run up to Christmas, in an effort to boost trade in the town.

Prize draw initiatives are already in place for Ballyshannon, Bundoran and the Twin Towns, with Councillor Michael Grant saying while any initiative would be welcome, Buncrana should go one step further.

The issue will be raised when the council meets tonight for the last of its 'public' monthly meetings at the Inishowen Gateway Hotel.

Councillor Grant says something must be done to boost the Christmas shopping trade.
