The local representative received the figures in response to an Assembly Question.
Mr Buchanan said, “These figures show that Coalisland remains parking ticket free. This answer combined with previous questions mean that traffic attendants appear not to have issued a single parking enforcement in Coalisland for more than a decade
Following publicity, there was at least one patrol in the town in 2016 when two warning notices were issued. At the time the Department said “this was the final patrol in which warning notices were to be issued instead of Penalty Charge Notices”. Having been placed on a ‘final warning’ in 2016, not a single enforcement notice has been issued since that time.
Clearly no tickets can be issued if no patrols have taken place so I will be seeking further detail around the number of patrols within Coalisland over this period.”
