A meeting was held on last Friday with Newry City Centre Management, in attendance was Sinn Féin Councillor Brendan Curran and the issue of car park attendants was brought up.

Speaking to Newry Times, Councillor Curran said, “I am calling on Minister Danny Kennedy to postpone the decision to remove attendants in the city centre car parks.

“This type of attended car park is vital to the life of our city centre. As well as those car park attendants losing their jobs, Newry shoppers will lose the ability to park for an unspecified amount of time and pay whenever they return, unlike what is being suggested were you would have to pay in advance.

“These workers provide a great service and are always eager to help consumers, so they should not be replaced by machines. I will be raising this matter with the council. Shoppers should be allowed to shop as long as they want and pay the fee when they return to their vehicle.

Curran added, “There needs to be a debate about the future of parking attendants in the Newry area.”
