The controversial parking ban on Meath beaches has been extended for six months. The ban was first introduced in order to limit access to the beaches during the March Covid-19 lockdown.
It’s subsequent extension has inadvertently led to parking chaos and dangerous driving conditions on both the Golf Links and Coast Roads particularly during good weather. Temporary parking facilities in schools did not prevent the problems.
The parking ban will be reviewed again in March 2021 when it’s hoped that Meath County Council will be able to provide a number of alternative parking solutions before the summer season. Very limited parking is currently available on Bettystown beach for those with impaired mobility or special needs.
