DUP MLA Maurice Bradley says he will continue to press the Department of Infrastructure in a bid to get a Residents’ Only Parking Scheme for Portrush.

This week, MLA Bradley met with representatives from the Department, local residents and Causeway DUP councillors, Mark Fielding and Trevor Clarke in relation to the matter.

“The bottom line is that residents cannot get parked outside of their own homes due to inconsiderate parking around the harbour area.
“Council has agreed to remove a sign at Lansdowne which restricts parking to 12 hours in a bid to assist.
“This means that residents or visitors can leave their cars in the carpark overnight without fear of enforcement.
“I would encourage visitors to the area to use this car park instead of the residential streets in the town.
“Inconsiderate parking in these residential areas is having a detrimental impact on some residents. Residents with mobility issues are being denied parking close to their homes, this is also having an impact on residents with small children.

“I had written to the Department on October 12, highlighting the uniqueness of Portrush and its night time economy.
“There is a vital need for a residents’ only scheme in the area. This week I contacted the Department for an update. A scheme is due to commence in Belfast in January, so I feel that a pilot scheme outside of the city should be the next step for the Department,” said the East Londonderry representative.
