240 new spaces for Acute Hospital
The Western Health and Social Care Trust (Western Trust) will increase car parking spaces at the South West Acute Hospital site. The move will add 240 new parking spaces with 90 of those due in September.
A meeting was held on Thursday 2 August, and a review of car parking was undertaken.
The following was agreed:
1.To immediately remodel the existing parking provision to provide 90
additional spaces. The 90 spaces will come into effect in September 2012;
2.To construct a further 150 new spaces on the site;
3.To implement the South West Acute Hospital Travel Plan. The Travel Plan will
encourage car sharing, use of public transport and various environmentally
friendly initiatives, such as ‘walk to work’ and ‘cycle to work;
4.To defer the relocation of the remaining community based staff from
community facilities to the new hospital site until the car park spaces are
5.To defer charging on the 187 spaces at the two tier car park until the
construction of the additional 150 new spaces. Charging on the 49 spaces
adjacent to the Emergency Department will proceed as planned in September
