Plan nails down who is responsible for fixing what in Ballymena’s recently installed public realm areas

Pictured recently at Greenvale Street, marking the completion of the £1.28m public realm scheme on a number of key commercial streets in the heart of Ballymena, are (L-R) David Porter, Department for Infrastructure, Anne Donaghy, Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, Louise Warde Hunter, Department for Communities, Alderman Robin Cherry MBE, President of the Chamber of Commerce and Tony Zammitt, FP McCann Ltd.

A PLAN has been drawn up to nail down exactly who is responsible for doing what when it comes to maintenance of Ballymena’s recently installed public realm work in the town centre.

A report prepared for councillors shows Mid & East Antrim Borough Council will be responsible for areas like planters and trees, cleaning pavements and inspecting and replacing street furniture if necessary.

The report shows the Department for Infrastructure will repair faulty pavements.

The reports also makes reference to the ‘responsibilities of private owners’ saying areas of paving within the privately owned areas are to be cleaned and maintained by their respective owners.
