Sinn Féin Councillor Colly Kelly has welcomed the news that a widespread area of the Bogside is finally to get a residents parking scheme.
Councillor Collly Kelly said
“I welcome confirmation from the Roads Minister Chris Hazzard the Bogside is finally going to get a residents parking scheme.
My party colleagues Martina Anderson and Patricia Logue have been campaigning for a residents parking scheme in the Bogside from as far back as 2007.They have met with residents from the area on many occasions over the years.
The Triax management team have also been working very hard on the issue and have collected surveys of resident’s views on any proposed scheme and facilitated a public consultation on behalf of the then DRD Roads Service.
This has been a very long campaign and the issue of residents parking has constantly been caught up in red tape.
I am glad that all the hard work and lobbying over the years has finally paid off.
