  1. It’s great news parking in Girne is a nightmare especially around the law courts !
    The big problem is with owners of businesses who put up signs outside their premises to stop the public parking ! These owners should be fined as they don’t own the road outside their premises !
    Also shopkeepers should realise that if the public can’t park near their premises they lose business !
    The car parks are not just for the public they are also for owners of businesses too !

    1. Well said Graham

      Parking in Girne has always been a problem and perhaps at last we are going to see major improvements
