Fine Gael councillor Sharon Tolan is welcoming the news that work is due to begin today on the renovation of the Laytown Car Park.

The textile recycling banks will be removed on a temporary basis, while the bring banks for cans and bottles will be relocated to the bus turning area adjacent to the car park and east of the playground.

In addition a new set down area will be  provided for the bring banks, west of the bridge as you enter Laytown and Cllr. Tolan says it’s hoped the bring banks will be reinstated there before Christmas.
