Glens Independent Councillor Padraig McShane has welcomed the decision to overturn the implication of seasonal car parking.
The car parking charges proposed were for some of the most iconic parts of our tourism trail in the Causeway Coast & Glens.
The Councillor stated;
The proposal ran against our aspirations as a tourism destination. Charging in Ballintoy Harbour, Portrush or Ballycastle sea front was sending the wrong signals to those we should be welcoming to our Borough. In addition, not enough consideration has been given to local residents who are obliged to use these car parks due to on street parking laws.
Councillor McShane has consistently voted against what he describes as “unfair proposals that were not considered holistically”.
