Have Your Say On A Glens of Antrim Greenway

1 Mins read

Mid and East Antrim and Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Councils are working with Sustrans, to gather your thoughts on exciting plans to create a new greenway connecting Ballymena to Cushendall.

A series of community consultation events are taking place this month to garner views and ideas for the new greenway. Sustainable transport charity, Sustrans, will then use the information gathered to do a feasibility study of the route.

Greenways are traffic-free routes designed for non-motorised use, connecting people and communities for everyday journeys, commuting or leisure and recreation.

Some potential options between Ballymena and Cushendall are being explored. The plans could also include a possible connection to Broughshane or using the former Red Bay Railway.

The project is at the very early stages with no preferred options which is why the community consultation events are so important. They are happening at the times and dates below:

15 May 7.30pm-9pm – Ballymena Showgrounds

17 May 7.30-9pm – Broughshane House, Main St, Broughshane

22 May 7.30-9pm – Glenravel Parish Centre, Glenravel Rd, Martinstown

24 May 7.30-9pm – Cushendall Parish Centre, Chapel Rd, Cushendall

Speaking ahead of the community consultation exercises, outgoing Mayor, Cllr Paul Reid commented, “There’s a great opportunity here to develop an amenity that has the potential to benefit the area and communities on a variety of levels from transport and health to the local economy and tourism. I would encourage anyone who has a view or just wants to find out more to come along to one of the events.”
