Car park barriers could block access for motorhomes in Newcastle car parks


New car park barriers could be erected in order to keep motor home owners out of Newcastle car parks, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

The situation has been described as “significantly problematic” and Newry, Mourne and Down District Council is to consider installing height restriction barriers.

Council provisionally agreed last September to conduct research on the issue pertaining to motor homes using car parks in the coastal resort.
The barriers would incorporate a silhouette of the Mourne Mountains in keeping with the ‘aesthetic appreciation’ of the area.

At the same time, consideration is also being given as part of the exercise for a reconfiguration of spaces at Donard car park.

This would be done to create six dedicated bays for motor homes. This would also require the installation of additional signage, as the 12 hour occupancy restriction in any 24 hour period would remain in place, as per current tourist amenity bye-laws.
