A local trader association is urging people in the Shannonside Region to help delay streetscape works in Ballymahon.

The businesses have highlighted concerns with accepted plans from the TII for the section of the N55 in the town.

They say the plans will see the removal of over 100 on street parking spaces along with other alterations to the main road.

The group held a public meeting last night to discuss the concerns, with members of the community and local politicians in attendance.

Spokesperson for the group, Peter Denahy, is urging people to make submissions against the plans before the 14th of April:

"We would love to see off-street parking. We would love to see the council come back to us and say we've identified A, B, and C and we're prepared to do whatever. We could work with them but we can't work with the council removing 101 car parking spaces. You'll see neighbours and friends fighting over car parking on the street because not everyone will be allowed to park outside their houses. Not every business has a car parking space outside. We want people to put in submissions to the present plan so that we can stall it".
