Lisburn Chamber of Commerce Car Parking Survey



In recent months, from anecdotal evidence, it was felt that parking ‘challenges’ in Lisburn had reached a level that was now becoming detrimental to operating a business in the city centre.

In contrast, out-of-town retailers have no such parking problems.

To validate what the Chamber was hearing from a few retailers, it was decided to survey city centre businesses through  a short questionnaire. This was undertaken over the last two weeks of October.

On the evidence of the responses received, we now believe the key issues to progress are:

  1. 1 hour free on-street parking (currently metered parking administered by DFI)
  2. Build increased understanding of parking enforcement with a view to reduce complaints
  3. A retailer delivery scheme like the Blue Badge and/or re-positioning of the current delivery bays or creation of further delivery bays

The Chamber will now write to the key stakeholders: LCCC, DfI and elected representatives to share the results of this survey and progress workable solutions to the identified problems.
