Strand Road Car Park proposal turned down

The proposed  car park on Strand Road Sutton has been turned down by the elected Council.
I reported at  that the proposal was going on public display and that I didn’t agree with it.  Local residents have also expressed their disagreement and as a result, the Special Amenity Area Order Management Committee (meeting on 5th July) recommended against the proposal and the full Council (meeting on 10th July) agreed to reject it.  Instead, the Council to simply mark the few existing spaces outside the field at the corner on Strand Road.  The estimated €50,000 remains in the kitty for the Special Amenity Area Order and I will be pressing to have it spent on signage and maintenance of rights of way.
