  • The main Foyle Maritime Festival will take place from 14th – 22nd July.
  • In anticipation of the crowds that may want to come and see the race fleet we may have to put traffic restrictions in place from the evening of 14th July 2018 onwards and possibly close through access from Baronet Street to Fletcher Avenue depending on the scale of the crowds in the area. We will make this decision on the advice of the PSNI.
  • In order to accommodate residents living in Baronet Street we will have parking permits available to collect from council offices from Friday 6th July 2018 onwards. In the event of restricted access/no through access there will be a traffic management system in place with security that will be on hand to assist and advise at all times. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and assure you that we will endeavour to limit these restrictions where and when possible.
  • Please ask for the Foyle Maritime Festival Residents Officer at council reception in order to sign out a parking permit. Proof of address will be required to ensure residents only can avail of these permits, please bring this proof with you when requesting a permit
