Relocation Of Robert Quigg Memorial Statue?

ABOVE : Relocation of statue

Plans were revealed to councillors behind closed doors last week on the progression of the Bushmills’ ‘Arrival Hub’ which would facilitate a ‘Park & Stride / Park and Ride’ for the village.

Among the documents seen by Causeway Coast Community were plans revealing a proposed relocation of the Robert Quigg Memorial Statue due to a new entrance to the car-park.

The Queen unveiled the life-size statue of Victoria Cross winner Sergeant Robert Quigg in July 2016.

Causeway Coast Community understands that some Councillors oppose the development of the existing car park at Dundarave on the grounds it brings nothing to the community, increases air pollution beside a large residential area where there are children and would incur a considerable cost to the ratepayer.

Many Councillors feel questions need to be asked around the proposed re-siting of the Quigg Memorial at the boundary wall and also the terms of the existing lease between the old Moyle Council and the National Trust, including the duration of the lease and the current income accrued from the existing lease.

One local Councillor said: “As well as our concerns, there is a private operator with a planning application to build a car park. Such an option would be cost negative to the ratepayer.”
