Sinn Féin councillor Mickey Cooper has welcomed new arrangements to deal with traffic and parking issues facing residents in the Clarence Avenue area of Derry.

The development has resulted from a meeting between local residents, Colr. Cooper and the PSNI.

Colr. Cooper said the new arrangements should help residents to report traffic issues such as problems accessing their properties.

He said: “The area has long been blighted by large volumes of parking by city centre workers and local students, which has caused much frustration for residents. I have already worked with the police and residents to initiate a similar scheme in the Aberfoyle area which has helped to ease some of the issues residents were experiencing and I am confident the same will apply in the Clarence Avenue area.”
