Chamber backs upgrade plans for Roscommon town

The president of Roscommon Chamber of Commerce is welcoming the planning permission being sought by Roscommon County Council for the upgrading of the town’s streetscape.

Caitlin McConn says the chamber and Roscommon Town Team have been working closely with the local authority in developing the best design for the future development of the town.

She says one-hour parking spaces in some areas of the town have already been working well, which will be further developed in the streetscaping and traffic flow changes that are ahead.

Chamber president says the creation of a pedestrianised area on the eastern side of the square, and more parking near Loughnaneane Park are also key features for the future.
