Causeway Coast & Glens Independent Councillor Padraig McShane says he will continue to reject additional car parking charges in tourism hotspots in Causeway Coast and Glens.
In a statement this morning he said “The charges are the same as they were last month. Ill-considered, in many instances impractical and wrong”.
“The failure to manage spending that has left us in this situation is now being used to strong-arm councillors into unimaginative and draconian measures.
“Parking charges are only one of the numerous measures that are being used to throw a lifeline to those who put the people of the Borough in this mess.
“Those proposing to rescind last month’s democratic debate and decision appear unwilling and unable to protect the best interests of citizens in the Borough”.
