Is a decision imminent?

There is increasing speculation that Roads Service will announce their decision in respect of the future status of Queen Street car park before the end of this current month (November).
EWPG would greatly welcome such a development as our group wish to see this matter resolved as expediently as possible. There is no creditable reason to proceed with the introduction of 'pay and display.' Our survey of the adjacent P&D car park at Head Street continues to show an abundance of available spaces throughout the day.
It is time for Roads Service to step back from the brink and to heed the collective voice of the town's workers.

EWPG's mid-term break

EWPG decided to refrain from counting the parking spaces at Head Street during the week 27 October - 1 November on the grounds that it coincided with the mid-term break. Consequently the volume of traffic into the town during this period is greatly increased and is not in keeping with the norm.
Additionally on Saturday 1 November a Meccano exhibition at Enniskillen Library attracted visitors from far and near. Rest assured that we will recommence our survey in the coming weeks. However be warned that the lead up to Christmas will not present a true pattern of car park utilisation throughout the year. We can only hope that Roads Service is mindful of this fact as they set about correlating their own statistics.
At this juncture we would encourage Roads Service to reach a decision regarding the future status of Queen Street car park.
