  Notice re Baltimore Car Park

To Users of the Car Park near Baltimore Pier
Baltimore Baltimore Tidy Towns has received approval and partfunding
from Cork County Council to remove the large phormium
plants from the middle of the Island Car Park in Baltimore and cover
the ground with weed-proof membrane and gravel. By removing the
plants, this will allow car-park users easier and safer access to their
cars (now restricted by the huge size of the plants which encroach on
the parking bays) and will allow the area to be kept more clean and
tidy. Original plans to pave or concrete the area turned out to be too
expensive but hopefully funding will be available at a later date to
permanently pave or concrete over the area in place of gravel.
Please spread the word about this project, which is due to begin after
the October Bank Holiday and be completed at the latest by early
December 2014. In order for the works to proceed, cars will need to
be removed from the parking bays on both sides of the middle island
of the car park to allow access for heavy machinery. This affects
only the parking bays around the middle island of the car park which
means that the parking bays next to the harbour and near the
playground can still be used during the works.
Cars will be leafleted closer to the date, but spreading the word now
will help frequent users of the car park to be prepared. Although it
will mean temporary inconvenience for some, the end result should
be an improvement that will benefit all car-park users.
Many thanks,
Baltimore Tidy Towns
