Galway City Council is inviting feedback from residents, visitors and businesses on parking in Salthill, as part of parking management study for the area. Submissions are invited through www.activetravelgalway.ie by 10th July 2021. The study will explore potential active travel measures along the Prom, and will make recommendations on regulating parking, in order to support the continued vitality of the Salthill area and its distinctive character and charm. This study is funded by the National Transport Authority.
Speaking about the study, Jimmy Callan, Acting Senior Engineer, Galway City Council commented, “The character of Salthill has changed over time but still retains its distinctive character and amenity value. In recent years it has re-established itself as an urban village with an increase in the permanent residential population, supporting a broader range of services for the local community and visitors. The purpose of this parking study is to establish a relationship between how people are using Salthill, and where they choose to park. Previous public consultation in relation to Covid measures in summer 2020 shows there is a strong demand to look at how travel and parking is managed in Salthill in the longer term. Galway City Council welcomes the input, and insight, of residents, businesses, commuters and visitors to the area”.
Feedback from all mode users is welcome, and will inform the recommendations of the study. Submissions can be made online, through www.activetravelgalway.ie or directly at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SalthillSurvey , with 3 X €100 vouchers to be won.
