Increase to Parking Charges is Another Blow to Local Businesses – Kimmins

Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins has said the news that car parking charges in Newry are set to increase will be another blow to local traders in the City.

The Newry & Armagh MLA said:

“The announcement from DFI that on-street car parking charges in Newry are set to increase will leave shoppers and local businesses feeling frustrated.

“This will only put further pressure on businesses who have already had to endure the challenges of lockdown and are now struggling as the cost of living and doing business continues to rise.

“Local traders had already had issues with the ‘Controlled Parking Zone’ and this news will only frustrate them further as they claim that this move was made without any consultation of local businesses.

“I will be writing to the Department for Infrastructure on this matter to ensure that the concerns of local businesses are raised, and their voices heard.

“It is vital that we support and listen to our local businesses during this difficult period and help our economies bounce back after a tumultuous period.”
