Thanks to those residents from the Bishophill are who contacted us to say that some people are apparently exploiting the Oliver House situation to get free car parking.
The property is located in the middle of a ResPark area with residents paying around £100 a year (depending on car size) for parking permits.
Apparently some drivers are monopolising the car parking spaces which were provided for the use of staff and residents at the elderly persons home.
The 8 spaces could bring in around £1000 a year from car parking charges.
On Sunday only one of the parked vehicles was displaying ResPark pass suggesting that the Council is loosing out on potential income.
It’s about time that the Council explained what is going to happen with this building and when.
