Increasing Footfall For Coleraine Town Centre Will Be The Priority For Alliance If Local Candidate Yvonne Boyle Is Elected To Council In May

1 Mins read

Yvonne, who is a former Deputy Mayor of Coleraine, was recently selected by the party to contest the Coleraine area in May’s election for Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council. She said helping to improve the economy of the town was high on her list of priorities.

Speaking to Causeway Coast Community she said “In my previous role as Alliance Deputy Mayor of Coleraine in 2014 and throughout my entire time as Councillor, I put several issues on my list of importance. They included the economic regeneration of the town, building our tourism potential, encouraging positive community relations and enhancing the local arts sector. In these uncertain times due to Brexit and the suspension of Stormont, the role of the Council in supporting the local economy, public services and building our potential is even more vitally important than ever.”

“If I am elected again in May, I will continue that work, with a focus on increasing the footfall in Coleraine town centre. There are several ways we can bring more locals, businesses and tourists into the town. We need to fully implement the Council’s Retail Strategy to assist retailers in an era of increasing online shopping. One way is to develop and boost the night-time economy.

“In addition, Coleraine is proudly the home of Northern Ireland’s first Enterprise Zone but we can always do more to harness its potential, including connecting with the strengths of the Ulster University, such as their expertise in life sciences and the media. By doing so we can attract the investment needed to make Coleraine a shining example for all in the Causeway Coast and Glens area and make it a vibrant, must visit attraction in N Ireland tourism.”
