A spokesperson has released the following on behalf of the party.
“The DUP Causeway Group believe that every option should be on the table for next weeks special meeting regarding Rates.
“This is why we have brought car parking charges back to the agenda. We agree with other parties that tough decisions have to be made. It is now for them to show they mean those words. Bringing in these charges would help lower the rate we would have to strike.
“As we have stated before we will be seeking a full reform plan for the next three years to make sure we are never in this position again.
“DUP is working hard to make sure we can deliver the best service at the best value for the ratepayer.”
