Buncrana’s 30 minutes of free parking is to remain in place for the immediate future.
Last night, Buncrana’s Town Councillors opted not to consider the proposed changes to bye-laws governing parking charges across the town.
They decided the current system should remain in place for now, including the unofficial 30 minute ‘grace period.’
As Buncrana Town Council is due to be abolished later this month, the bye-laws will be considered in future by the newly-elected Donegal county councillors.
Local business owners had expressed concern over any termination of the grace period, arguing it would negatively impact on trade.
