Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper has welcomed confirmation that a new security barrier is to be installed at the car in front of Home Bargains and Harry Corry’s on the Strand Road. It comes after intensive lobbying due to the problems being created there late at night by car enthusiasts.
Councillor Cooper said “It’s been well publicised in the local press the problems that have been blighting this area late at night in relation to car enthusiasts gathering in this car park and the resulting noise pollution issues.
“A number of additional security measures had been put in place but sadly it wasn’t enough to stop the problems there.
“I am pleased to have received confirmation that a new a barrier is to be installed at the entrance to the car park. And I have also arranged for the police and wardens to visit the area to ensure it remains quiet.
“If any resident has concerns on this issue, they should feel free to contact me.
