ASB in Ballyoran Park Must be Urgently Addressed - Duffy

Published: 6 May, 2018

Speaking following a number of complaints from nearby residents regarding anti-social behaviour in Ballyoran Park Sinn Féin Councillor Paul Duffy said:

"This is an ongoing issue in the Ballyoran park area. A gang of teenagers have been throwing stones and eggs at residents windows. Our foreign national community have also been targeted in these sickening attacks leaving them feeling extremely vulnerable.

"Those involved have also targeted cars coming from the Ballyoran Hill direction - almost resulting in accidents. Drivers have contacted me and are now weary of using this route.

"I would call on the local shops to be cautious when selling repeat batches of eggs and am appealing to local sports and youth clubs to chat to their members about the consequences of ASB.

"I have engaged both the PSNI and PCSP so as we can work together to address these instances of ASB immediately."
