The extent of non-residents parking in two areas of the Waterside was not considered sufficient to justify residents’ parking schemes.
Roads Minister Danny Kennedy revealed that in October 2007, surveys were undertaken in seven Derry City Council areas.
These included Northland 1, Northland 2, Clarendon Area, Rossville Street, City Centre South, Waterside 1 and Waterside 2.
Mr Kennedy said the surveys were undertaken to “determine their suitability for residents’ parking schemes.”
He stated: “The extent of non-resident parking was considered sufficient to justify the implementation of residents’ parking schemes in four of the areas: Rossville Street, City Centre South, Clarendon and Northland 2.”
