Councillor Holmes - With the great success of the bike trails in Garvagh Forest there is an ongoing serious issue with car parking. Resident complaints said that on Sunday 21st March vehicles were parked into the town to the extent that residents were having difficulty parking their own cars. We urgently need to address the car parking issue and I would like an update on measures we could take to alleviate the situation both in the short term and long term.

Councillor McQuillan - Inadequate car parking at Garvagh Forest.
