A formal consultation has opened today with proposals to introduce a Residents’ Parking Scheme in the Bogside area of Derry City.
The Rossville Street area Residents’ Parking Scheme would be the first such scheme for the City and involves over 600 residential properties mainly in the Rossville Street, Fahan Street, Little Diamond, Creggan Street and Chamberlain Street areas.
Proposals for the Scheme were first announced by the previous Minister for Infrastucture, and following informal consultations there has proven to be significant support from residents who are experiencing increasing difficulties parking outside their homes. The Department has written to all residents within the area and encourages all interested parties to formally respond to the proposals before 10 April.
If introduced as proposed, the Scheme will designate free of charge parking places for residents only between the hours of 10.00 am and noon and between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm from Monday to Saturday inclusive. Visitors will be able to park within areas designated for residents provided a valid visitor’s permit is displayed on the vehicle. A number of spaces shall also remain for non residents.
