    been a gentle approach so far but the recent clamp down has caused some anxiety for our retail members We understand the implications of the planning laws and a look back over Cashel Development Strategies clearly shows that sandwich boards have really been off the menu for at least a decade Cashel isn t unique national legislation is pretty negative when it comes to on street signage even though there are degrees of interpretation around the country Business is always agile of course famously when Galway city banned them one Chef had his apron printed up with his menu and walked the streets in his break time as a human sandwich board Yet despite their disapproval by legislators the boards continue to be used because they are effective The fee involved to legally erect one is a heavy cross to carry especially when the costs are all up front We also recognise that unfortunately some premises are just not in the right place to benefit from a sandwich board public safety must always be paramount The pavement is for public access and in places where it is too narrow we cannot expect to be granted permission to erect sandwich boards We are proud of our Gold Star status too but we think there are places where a sandwich board will have no negative effect on disabled access We believe this issue should be treated on a case by case basis There are also public liability issues to consider here and indemnity for the Council is clearly required such insurance has to be taken out and it must cover in excess of 6M That s an additional and unavoidable cost to any business when they choose to use this method of advertising There have been various reports on retail strategies for Cashel over the past 10 years and they all talk about increasing footfall we contend that properly placed sandwich boards can actually encourage people to walk around the town They spike people s interests and some can be tourism attractions in their own right they can in fact be quaint objects of folk art As a Chamber we have to be responsive to our members needs and opinions and if there is sufficient support from our retail members and it certainly was a hot topic at our meeting on Thursday 13th June we will enter into discussions with the council over the issue Of course we have to work within the legislation but we believe its local interpretation should be flexible enough to allow for some degree of accommodation We have looked at various propriety sandwich boards that are available locally maybe we should go for a one size fits all policy We would ask the council to rethink the scale of charges currently the license fee is almost 600 for an approved sandwich board that is a lot of money to stump up when you are small business relying on passing trade A monthly fee would be easier on

    tourism figures translate very poorly into feet on the streets of Cashel We also know that there are plans in train from the County Council to establish Destination Cashel as a brand and that the Town Centre Forum will meet in June to discuss enhancements to the townscape It s all very positive and we are heartened by the lower charges at the Rock car park and the fact that a parking ticket bought there can be used down town However we are unclear whether official signage will tell motorists that they can indeed visit the town for free once they ve arrived at Bru Boru We have formally asked the council to be clear about this and put up some unambiguous sighs to promote more visits to the town centre He went on to say that for many years there have been calls to bring tour buses into the town and if the community is serious about attracting more people to the hub then it s time a real incentive was offered to the coach companies perhaps with reduced rates at the town centre car park or even a short term free stop and drop system where their passengers would alight in Town and be picked up at the Rock One more thing we really need is for the town to be seen as vibrant place to be a place where you can spend a couple of days a place with there are activities to hold your interest We are calling on community groups to start using the Plaza on Saturdays to bring some life into the town art groups for example might run Painting on the Plaza we could have the Brass Band playing and of course it s a natural space for Piping on the Plaza We

    proceedings Aidan Kennedy was on hand to offer his take on a possible solution to the lighting issue Sean Laffey President of the Chamber told this paper that the meeting heard that there are some technical issues with the present lighting stock and these can be overcome However the days of the old bright glass bulbs are over as these are being phased out and the route forward is low energy LED lamps The good news is that the new generation of bulbs uses half the energy of the current lamps and the new lamps are much brighter A chain of lights containing the old ones and a new brighter bulb was displayed in the blacked out bar so that the members could assess the difference between them Thee was a discussion as to the placing of the lights and Mr Kennedy said he would develop a technical proposal to run the lights across the town from the Post Office up to Abrakebabra This would involve the removal of the existing brackets and their replacement with a very strong but unobtrusive new attachment that is only 3 inches long but is capable of carrying loads in excess of 150 Kilograms This would add greatly to the look of the town and might gain extra points in Tidy Towns competitions it was noted Sean Laffey thanked Mr Kennedy for his presentation and thanked Councillor Martin Browne SF for his attendance He added that the lights should be a joint effort between the Chamber and the Town Council and he was delighted that councillor Browne SF was in attendance and that he had offered some very constructive ideas Mr Laffey said he was a little disappointed that other councillors who had criticized the display last Christmas were not on hand to proffer
