Sinn Fein Cllr Kevin Savage in appeal to users of Gilford Community Centre

Published: 6 November, 2017

Speaking following a meeting with the Gilford Concerned Residents Group Councillor Savage said:

"Throughout the course of this meeting the group highlighted this particular issue. Many groups use the Gilford Community Centre including many who are blue badge holders and entitled to use the disabled bays. Too frequently these spaces are being misused by non blue badge holders. This can make it increasingly difficult for those who require enhanced accessibility. The disabled parking bays should only be used by badge holders.

"I have now contacted senior council officers in attempt to resolve the situation. In the meantime I would appeal to community centre users to park only where they are entitled to and show due consideration for blue badge holders."
