Wilson welcomes news that Linenhall Street site is sold

1 Mins read

Ulster Unionist Councillor Darryl Wilson has welcomed the news today that Linenhall Street has been sold to a local businessman.

“Parts of Linenhall Street have been derelict for decades and has been absolute eyesore in the heart of the town, in recent times public money was spent on painting the derelict buildings and adding fake shopfronts, however this “sticking plaster” approach only masked the issue which has inhibited town centre growth and tourism for years.

It is indeed welcome news that local businessman Alan Matthewson has purchased the site with a view to redeveloping it. With plans in the pipeline to carry out substantial works to High Street also we could see a very welcome and total transformation for Ballymoney Town centre.

Going forward we must do all within our power to tap into the huge tourist potential which mostly passes us by on its way to the North Coast. Ballymoney is the gateway to the Causeway Coast and Glens, I look forward to seeing a positive change take place in the near future .
