The Circular Road / Union Street area of Coleraine is to be surveyed to determine it’s eligibility for a Residents Parking Scheme.
This was revealed by the Infrastructure Minister following a question by DUP MLA Maurice Bradley who asked the Minister whether his Department will give consideration to introducing a residents’ parking scheme in the Circular Road / Union Street area.
Minister Hazzard responded to MLA Bradley, saying : “My Department is currently pursuing a number of resident’s parking schemes which are at various stages of development. It is my Department’s intention to develop further proposals when the initial batch of schemes have been implemented and evaluated.”
“I understand that a request for a resident’s parking scheme in Circular Road was considered back in 2012. Surveys were carried out at that time to determine the extent of parking by residents and non-residents. However, the result indicated that Circular Road did not meet the criteria for consideration for a scheme at that time.”
“A new survey of the Circular Road and Union Street area will be carried out, following implementation and evaluation of the schemes currently being developed by my Department.”
