Save 30 Minutes Free Parking in Lucan:
The free 30 mins parking is being reviewed by the Council. Fine Gael brought this measure in. I think it's been a great benefit to shoppers as well as businesses. What's your view? Please have your say through the Council's consultation portal and encourage others to too. Go to www.bit.ly/finegael30minscampaign register and make a submission on this.
Details of the July Stimulus have been announced and will help businesses reopen and get our people back to work. Initiatives such as restart Grants, waiver of commercial rates, credit guarantee scheme have been expanded and the stay and spend Incentive introduced. Check out my Facebook page (EmerHigginsTD) for more information.
Cycle to Work:
I asked the Minister to increase the tax incentive for the Cycle to Work scheme. This has been approved.

Parking bye-laws consultation:
The Draft Control of Parking Bye Laws 2020 are now out on public consultation and will remain open to submissions until the 28th August. They will be available on the Council's Public consultation portal at https://consult.sdublincoco.ie/en/browse.
These bye-laws will govern the parking in our villages for the near future so I would encourage people to have their say. If you would like to discuss it further, or to reflect your views in my submission, please let me know.
I have requested that the Council cut back the significant overgrowth on Castle Road, both at the entrance to Abbeywood and across the road near the entrance to Colthurst. This is a mater I have pursued on behalf of residents for some time, and I hope to get resolution on the matter soon.
