You can have your say on what's planned

You can have your say on Kilkenny’s draft casual trading bye-laws from today.

The City area saw its adopted in March (see here) but a review’s been underway on the county’s three other municipal districts of Castlecomer, Piltown and Callan / Thomastown.

It looked at the current rules and existing trading bay areas while also considering new ones that may be suitable in parts of the county.

11 locations have been identified, some of the older ones removed from the list with up to five new areas added. They now go on public view and submissions can be made up to the 10th of December. (See below)
