Following the walk about in Dundrum, with other SDLP councillors, MLA and MP, she has also asked the NI Housing Executive to ensure that weeds are sprayed as a matter of urgency in the estates in the village.
Councillor O’Boyle said: ” I was shocked to see the amount of litter that is lying along the Dromara Road in Dundrum. Some of it clearly has been accumulating for some time and it needs to be collected and taken away.
“The weeds that are thriving in some of the NIHE estates is also an issue that needs to be addressed urgently as well. I have contacted the officers in Council and those in the Housing Executive with responsibility for this, so hopefully these eyesores will all be taken care of in the next week or two.”
