Residents Parking Petition

Alliance Holywood representative Kate Nicholl at
one of many areas in need of Residents Parking 
In a recent survey conducted by the Alliance Party 97% of respondents called for a Residents Parking Scheme in their street. 

Many residents we spoke to recalled the practical difficulties being encountered without a parking permits scheme such as being unable to park close to their home and having to carry shopping extremely long distances. 

Whilst 86% of respondents want the scheme to apply All Week 58% want it in operation 24 hours a day and remaining opinion split between 8am to 6pm and 8am to 10pm. £80 fee previously proposed by Department for Regional Development has rightly been rejected.

With no progress evident, despite promises to start piloting schemes in 2008, Alliance is urging local Residents to sign our online petition at make your views known to the Regional Development Minister Mr Danny Kennedy MLA.
