“RESIDENTS Only” signs are unlikely to be erected in the Sundays Well estate despite complaints by residents about AIB staff parking there while at work across the road.
Naas Town Council should put up at least two signs in the estate, said Cllr. Pat Clear, who pointed out that four such signs had been put up in the St. Conleth’s Place area and one was placed in St. Corban’s, Dublin Road.
Naas Town Clerk Ken Kavanagh said that he had been in contact with the AIB which indicated that it had issued a communication to its staff asking “that they respect their neighbours when parking while at work”.
However the erection of the signs was not entirely ruled out.
He also claimed that the requested signs would not eliminate the issue of “visitor” parking since “it would not be possible to readily indentify whether a vehicle parked in the estate belongs to a resident or not and consequently would be difficult to enforce.”
An AIB spokeswoman told the Leader that staff had been made aware of the complaints made by residents. However a resident told the Leader last week that some AIB staff members continue to park there and it was claimed that some had left litter behind.
It is likely that the councillors will be contacted again by residents. “Staff are still parking there and while the problem is not as bad as it originally was we are not sure if that is because of redundancies or changes to shift patterns,” the spokeswoman added.
