Sinn Féin’s Willie Clarke Welcomes Wall Repairs in Newcastle
SINN Féin Down District Councillor Willie Clarke has welcomed the recent installation of new fencing at King Street in Newcastle replacing the damaged wall at the top of Kennedy’s Hill.
Councillor Clarke said: “I had made representations to the Roads Service, and Down District Council to ensure the owners the Annesley Estate removed the dangerous wall; there has been some concern from residents in regards to the large tree also. I have been assured that, DRD officials will again survey the tree to ensure it isn’t a threat to public safety.
“I would like to thank staff from both organisations for their response to ensure remedial works were carried out to the damaged wall site. The wall was a major eye sore and indeed was very dangerous for residents and visitors alike, there was a particular concern given the proximity of housing and two schools nearby.”
