Following on from tonights update on works in the Causeway Coast And Glens area by the Department for Infrastructure. Local DUP MLA Maurice Bradley said:

“I would like to thank the local DfI Office and officers for their continued support and help, especially during the summer months when grass cutting is a priority as far as the electorate are concerned.

“My office receives complaints day and daily about grass cutting, especially at Road Junctions and I would have to say most of the requests we put through are dealt with in an efficient and timely manner.

“However, I would appeal for more money than is currently allocated to Routine Maintenance, which includes grass cutting, environmental work, gully emptying, embankment/verge maintenance, fencing, etc.

“The current budget is set at only 3.3% compared to lands which is allocated £18.4%, in money terms, that is £476.067 and £4,132.000 respectively.
This is a major tourist area, it is vital for the tens of thousands of visitors to the area during the summer that this Borough is presented in a neat and tidy manner.
“The Causeway Coast and Glens is one of the most visited areas in the United Kingdom, unfortunately, its importance to visitors is not replicated in the funding available for the aesthetics of the area like a proper grass cutting strategy which would allow for more than the obligatory two cuts per annum, said Bradley.
