Alliance calls for open space

Commenting on the DUP and Ulster Unionist decision to cut Castlereagh’s rates by 2.67p or %, Alliance Party Councillor Margaret Marshall stated that the people of Castlereagh South needed play areas and parkland.

Councillor Marshall said: “Our area has been over developed and the Council should be providing amenities for the residents, both new and old.

“The sports Council recommends 2.4 hectares of land for recreation for every 1000 people. Over 1500 new house have been built here recently with no green areas left.

“The Castlereagh Economic Development Partnership is working hard to create employment in Castlereagh. It is ironic that at the same time the Council will be cutting employees working hours and putting jobs at risk.”
