Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper has welcomed new arrangements now put in place which should help residents to report traffic issues in the Lawrence Hill area which have caused problems for them accessing their properties in the last few years:
Councillor Cooper said
‘I am pleased that new reporting mechanisms have been put in place which will allow local residents to report issues of double parking and other obstructions to the police in a much more effective manner.
The area has long been blighted by large volumes of parking by city centre workers and local students which has caused much frustration for residents.
The new system will hopefully alleviate these issues in the coming weeks and months.
I have already worked with the police and residents to initiate a similar scheme in the Aberfoyle area which has helped to ease some of the issues residents were experiencing and I am confident the same will apply in the Lawrence Hill area.
