Parkhill urges Council not to increase Car Parking Tariffs

1 Mins read

UKIP assembly candidate for East Londonderry, Steven Parkhill has urged the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council not to increase Car parking tariffs in Coleraine.

Mr Parkhill said: “The high street is a vital part of any town, providing vitality and employment, and a haven for tourists and shoppers, bringing communities together; retailers are at the heart of every economy on high streets in town centres.

This price hike in car parking tariffs would be bad news for our local businesses in Coleraine.

With the increase of E-commerce and out of town retail parks, Councils should be lowering prices to increase car park occupancy, and encourage more people into the town which can potentially lead to higher footfall and more revenue for our local businesses.

Increasing parking tariffs would be a nail in the coffin for our high street businesses.”
