Castlebar councillors are to consider closing Tucker Street in the town to traffic, each evening, to facilitate an outdoor dining area for local businesses.
The proposal that will be discussed next week in detail by elected councillors and council officials at a local authority workshop is to close Tucker Street in the county town in the evenings from 6 to 11 p.m. for the summer months.
The plan is set to assist the businesses on the street to provide outdoor dining for customers.
The road closure, if agreed, will be advertised in the local media, to seek public opinion on the proposal.
The Cathaoirleach of Castlebar Municipal District Blackie Gavin says a number of businesses in the area are seeking this road closure for the summer months in the evening, and he believes it needs to be looked at seriously and he hopes it will be approved.
The Cathaoirleach has been outlining the proposal to Midwest News Editor Teresa O’Malley
