“You can now shop at your ease” in Mallow this Christmas
“You can now shop at your ease” in Mallow this Christmas as everyone will get three hours free parking in all public car parks in the town.
This was the overwhelming view of the members of the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District of Cork County Council at their recent monthly meeting when the proposal to offer three hours free parking to people coming to shop in Mallow was unanimously approved.
The three hour free parking in all public car parks will commence on Thursday 1st December next and remain in place until Monday 2nd January 2017. All public car parks in the town will be FREE for the first three hours and if shoppers wish to stay longer, they can do so by paying the modest parking charges which is as low as 20 cents for 15 minutes or 70 cents per hour in all car parks in the town.
In order to keep the turnover of car parking on the Main Street of Mallow, parking remains limited to one hour which will be free from the same dates. The current arrangements of free parking before 10am and after 5pm on Monday to Saturday and free parking all day Sunday remain unchanged and in place for Christmas.
Patrons coming to Mallow town are reminded that traffic wardens will still be on duty within the town in order to maintain the flow of traffic to and from the town. When you come to Mallow, your first three hours in all public car parks will be FREE. If you need to stay longer in the car park, you will need to ensure you have a parking ticket displayed from when the three hour period of free parking expires.
This is a great boost for Mallow and hopefully it will keep people shopping in Mallow this Christmas. Shopping locally is less stressful than travelling to the city, spending hours in long queues, so now with three hours free parking in all public car parks in Mallow this Christmas, you can hit the shops in your own time at no extra cost.
Mallow is the only town within the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District Area that has pay parking in operation. Please note existing parking arrangements in the other four towns within the District – Buttevant, Kanturk, Millstreet & Newmarket remain unchanged and in place.
