Setback on hospital car parking?

The provision of additional car parking spaces at Roscommon Hospital would appear to be some way off after Tuesday’s Regional Health Forum West (sitting in Galway) was informed that a revised spatial plan is currently being developed for Roscommon University Hospital.

  Only when that plan has been completed will funding for additional car parking spaces be sought.

  Cllr. Tony Ward had asked Tony Canavan, CEO, Saolta University Health Care Group, if planning permission had been granted for extra car parking spaces at the hospital.

  A reply stated: “In order to progress planned developments including additional car parking spaces, a revised spatial plan is currently being developed for Roscommon University Hospital.

  “Upon completion of the new spatial plan, an application for funding for additional car parking spaces will be submitted”.
