DOWNPATRICK  Sinn Féin councillor Liam Johnston has repeated calls to get a new amenity centre in Downpatrick.

Councillor Johnston said: “For the last eight years since I have been in Down District Council a new civic amenity centre was earmarked for Downpatrick, but has still not materialized.dn_screen

“With the weather improving and more garden waste being produced more and more pressure is being put on the existing site, and the need for a new site is paramount.

“The present site has served its purpose well but is now seriously out of date. There is a cause for concern here that an accident could happen at anytime.

“I am calling on Council to provide a new civic amenity centre as soon as possible, and I will continue to lobby them on this matter,” added Councillor Johnston.
