In a statement to Causeway Coast Community, Claire Sugden said
“I am glad to see the first Residents’ Parking Scheme commencing in Belfast and am keen to see schemes like this rolled out in this constituency. Residents’ parking is a big issue in this area, not just in the bigger towns like Coleraine and Limavady, but particularly for our coastal towns in the summer months.
Residents are often unable to park anywhere near their homes, which is not acceptable when they are residents all year round.
I have been in contact with Transport NI several times already and have been assured that this area is being considered for this scheme in the future. I will continue to urge the Department to make this area a priority in the rollout of this scheme.”
