The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - TRALEE FOCUS - By SI­MON BROUDER

KERRY County Coun­cil and the mem­bers of the Tralee Mu­nic­i­pal District coun­cil have agreed to re­view their de­ci­sion to pedes­tri­anise the Mall dur­ing the day and their rul­ing on the lo­ca­tions of new taxi ranks next Septem­ber.

At a special meet­ing on Fri­day Tralee Mu­nic­i­pal District Coun­cil­lors voted in favour of new taxi bye-laws and agreed to keep the newly re­fur­bished Mall free of traf­fic (ex­cept for busi­ness de­liv­er­ies) from 7am to 6.30pm.

Coun­cil­lors agreed to back the pro­pos­als on con­di­tion that they are re­viewed next year.

A full re­view of the im­pact on busi­ness and com­mu­nity life of the new Taxi byelaws and the pedes­tri­an­i­sa­tion of The Mall is to take place no later than Septem­ber 1, 2018.

Fol­low­ing this re­view and based on any sub­se­quent rec­om­men­da­tions from coun­cil man­age­ment Tralee Mu­nic­i­pal District’s nine coun­cil­lors will then make a fi­nal de­ci­sion on traf­fic ac­cess to the Mall and the new taxi rank sys­tem.

The pub­lic and busi­nesses are ex­pected to be con­sulted as part of the re­view.
