SINN Féin Councillor for the Rosemount area Mickey Cooper has been in talks with the University of Ulster about the start of academic year and associated issues that are brought about by the influx of new students and the impact this has on local area.
Councillor Cooper said: ““As a Councillor for the area I am aware that there have been issues within the area in previous years with excess noise and other Anti-Social Behaviour when the new university term begins in late September.
“I have spoken to the University of Ulster management to ask that all students are reminded of their duty to behave responsibly as new residents of the Rosemount area.
”I have also spoken to the Community Safety wardens to ask them to ensure that extra patrols take place in the first weeks of term to address any issues.
“The wardens can be contacted on 07736213140 to discuss any problems residents may have or alternatively they can feel free to contact me directly,” he added.
