Buncrana Town Council have decided against abolishing the free half hour parking in the town.

The decision was made on Monday night at the final meeting of Buncrana Town Council.

Buncrana Chambers of Commerce and the Buncrana Traders Association both felt that abolishing the free half hour parking would have a negative effect on business in the area.

When the town council is abolished later this month parking charges will become the responsibility of County Counicllors elected to the Inishowen Municipal District on May 23rd.
