Revamp of Bishop Street car park -Logue

Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue has made a number of proposals to Derry City and Strabane District Council to improve the visual and pedestrian permeability in and around the busy Bishop Street car park

Cllr Patricia Logue said “I made a proposal to the council this week to improve visual and pedestrian permeability of the car park improving its use as a public facility while enhancing its impact upon surroundings within the Historic City Conservation Area. It includes the city walls and surrounding listed buildings.

“I also made proposals that interventions include the removal of inappropriate and unsightly boundary structures on Bishop Street and Stable Lane along with the car park boundaries adjacent to the Freemason’s Hall and St Augustine’s Parochial Hall.

“There needs to be improvement of pedestrian access with a new ramp leading to Palace Street and additional access points from Bishop Street and Stable Lane. And finally one additional CCTV camera mounted on a 6.0m high pole is to be erected within the car park area.
