1 Mins read

Ulster Unionist Party Assemblyman and his party’s candidate for Westminster for North Antrim has called on the new Mid and East Antrim, and Causeway Coast and Glens super councils “to join forces and form a united front to ensure that funding for schemes along the Causeway coast are protected”.

Assemblyman Swann, who is UUP Chief Whip and Chairman of the Stormont Employment and Learning Committee, issued his appeal to the new super councils – which took over responsibility for the delivery of services on 1st April – after writing to the Mid and East Antrim Chief Executive Anne Donaghy and Causeway Coast and Glens Chief Executive David Jackson.
Mr Swann said: “There is real concern over the future of the Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust after the withdrawal of funding by the Department of the Environment.

“I am especially concerned at the impact on a number of major schemes running across both council areas which are now at serious risk.
“These schemes represent a significant financial investment which may be lost if administrative support is not provided.

“I appeal to both new super councils to join forces and form a united front so they could liaise and consider how best to ensure that this vital investment is protected,” said Assemblyman Swann.
