Police action to clampdown on irresposnible parking outside St Francis’ Primary School has been welcomed.
Sinn Féin Councillor Liam Mackle has welcomed the PSNI enforcement measures outside the school.
A community meeting was held recently to discyss the problem and Cllr Mackle said: “The ongoing situation with parents parking irresponsibly on footpaths outside the primary school has escalated.
“As such local PSNI officers will now issue tickets to those drivers parking in a manner that places pedestrians, of whom many are young children, in danger.”
He went on: “St Paul’s chapel ground remains available to those bringing children to and from school, however, a significant number of people fail to make use of this.
“I would call on all parents to take a responsible approach and use the chapel facilities.
“I have also contacted Transport NI about traffic calming measures for Francis Street and am awaiting their response.”
