Poll: Is banning all free parking in Dublin the right thing to do?

Dublin City Council is set to eliminate all free parking for cars in the capital.

DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL has laid out plans to eliminate all free parking from Dublin city.

The move, which is aimed initially at the areas between the Royal and Grand Canals before spreading progressively, is designed to stop workers from driving to the city from out of town and parking for free while they work.

Business groups are criticising the plan as too extreme and more likely to starve the city centre of paying customers.

Is the Council’s plan the correct course of action? Or is it far too extreme?

We’re asking: Is it really necessary to ban free parking from Dublin?

Poll Results:

No, it will kill trade and create a nightmare for workers (7755)
Yes, the city centre should be as car-free as possible (1848)
It doesn't affect me (1074)
