Published: 8 June, 2018

Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Savage has expressed his delight that council has secured the derelict site at Stramore Road.

He said:

"I lobbied council on this issue when it was brought to my attention by the Gilford Concerned Residents Group.

"I am delighted this site has now been secured.

"Young people were gathering at this site and it had the potential to become a hotspot for ASB.

"The health and safety of young people gathering was also at risk. In addition the site was becoming an eyesore. It really is excellent that the site is now secured.

"I want to thank council officers who worked with me on this and express my gratitude, and that of the local area, for acting so swiftly."
