Council are to investigate why Coleraine town centre car parks were not gritted this morning.

Maurice Bradley MLA said “After a number of complaints this morning in relation to slippery surfaces in the Coleraine town centre car parks I have spoken with Council.

I have been advised that Council contracted the gritting to an outside agency and they are currently investigating why the car parks have not been gritted. I understand that the Council in house team has now gritted the town centre car parks.

I will continue to press Council on this matter in light of the fact that in Coleraine we pay for all of our carparks, unlike other areas of the Borough were parking is free. I also note that a substantial amount of ratepayers’ money is to be invested in the Dunluce Centre car park, a car park that generates no income. Here, in Coleraine we have car parks, costing in some cases £4 a day and there appears to be no maintenance programmes in place – I would hope that the Council, under an equality agenda – would look at charging for all car parks in the Borough at a reasonable rate instead of penalising drivers in Coleraine.”
