McDonald welcomes news that Ahoghill park work is to start

Alderman Stewart McDonald

NEWS that work is to start on a new park in Ahoghill has been welcomed by a councillor.

Bannside TUV councillor Stewart McDonald said: “Having campaigned on the issue for a considerable period of time I welcome news that work is to commence on Ahoghill new park on 2nd March.

“Unfortunately the work will inevitably result in some disruption to traffic on the access road – something the local school, playgroup and businesses have been advised about.

“I will continue to lobby to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum and would ask everyone to keep in mind that this is a project which has been in the pipeline for three years.

“It is finally coming to fruition and I believe the whole community will reap long-term benefits which will far outweigh any short-term disruption which this work necessitates.”
