Savage Welcomes Gilford Parking Space Decision

Published: 28 January, 2019

Sinn Fein Cllr Kevin Savage has welcomed the decision by the Department of Infrastructure to create three accessible parking spaces in the centre of Gilford.

Cllr Savage stated,

"For a long time myself and the Gilford Concerned Residents group have lobbied DFI for accessible spaces to be made available in the centre of Gilford".

He continued,

"As recently as August, we met with the Network Engineer to discuss this and he accepted the case we made".

Cllr Savage has advised that two spaces will be available in Mill Street and a further one in Dumbarton Street.

"These spaces will be welcomed by residents who have mobility difficulties and want to shop in their local village, rather than journey to other towns with accessible spaces."
