Council fail to get Greenway grant

Speaking to Causeway Coast Community this morning, Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGuigan said:

“It is disappointing that Causeway Coast and Glens Council didn’t get the £25k funding. Linking Ballycastle and Ballymoney by way of a Greenway would be a major boost to both towns and all in between along the route not least the Dark Hedges, which could provide an alternative route to the thousands of people who are trying to access this top tourist attraction on roads which are not able to cope.”

“This Greenway project has massive potential for this area. Similar projects in the South have shown to be a major boost to the local economy and continue to accumulate revenue well above any investment in constructing the Greenways.

Sinn Féin fully support the development of this particular Greenway. Not only would it add to the Tourism potential in the North Antrim area it would provide much benefit to the local community in terms of safe environment for leisure and fitness for individuals and families.

I know from meetings with the Department for Infrastructure that there will be Capital funds made available at some point further down the line to assist with these projects so despite the disappointment at not getting the £25k we will be encouraging the Council to continue with the necessary work to take this project forward. I certainly believe that there is the will among senior Council officers and party’s to ensure this happens.”
