The club has been contacted by residents of Parkgate Drive and of Mersey Street School regarding supporter parking on match days.
A number of residents have had parking cones removed from the front of their homes, which has caused significant inconvenience. These are both narrow streets where priority parking is reserved for residents, for the use of St Christopher’s Church and for the Larder Food Bank. Supporter parking has also caused difficulty at times of medical emergency.
On behalf of both the club and the residents, we strongly request that with immediate effect, supporters show deserved consideration to the rights and needs of the local community by refraining from parking on either side of Parkgate Drive, well away from housefronts in the immediate locality. There is plenty of available parking at the Holywood Arches Heath Centre.
Glentoran is an important part of this community. So are our neighbours. Please respect them.
