South Down MLA Colin McGrath (SDLP) met with Northern Ireland Electricity Officials recently regarding the state of the electricity substation on Saul Street.
Mr Grath said: “I met with NIE officials to discuss the Anti-Social Behaviour and litter problems at the site of this substation.
“For a number of years the substation, and the field to the rear, have been a consistent location for anti-social behaviour due to its secluded nature. I have asked NIE to further secure the area by replacing the gate at the site to ensure the pathway between the substation and the adjoining field is blocked.
“Local people , many of whom are elderly, deserve to live in peace and free from such annoyance.
“I also spoke to the officials about fly tipping which regularly occurs at this site. I have asked that a railing be installed along the front of the site to ensure that dumping is prohibited”.
