Peace IV Application A Triumph For Lurgan - Mackle

Published: 19 June, 2018

Sinn Féin Councillor Liam Mackle has said that the Peace IV application submitted with a view to developing Lurgan Park and Waves will be a triumph for the Borough if successful.

He said:

"I am excited by the Lurgan Park/Waves Peace IV application.

"This has massive potential for the town of Lurgan with the vision of developing an iconic peace project in Lurgan Park.

"If this application is successful it will be a triumph for the people of Lurgan and the wider Borough.

"The new facility planned for the Waves complex, which will soon close, will offer new exciting arts and community opportunities including an auditorium, suite, cafe and exhibition place.

"Externally it will result in improved car parking, shared spaces, an outdoor events area and enhanced outdoor lighting.

"The partnership with Phoenix Park and exchange visits between Lurgan and Dublin schools to share experiences and learning are all positive developments.

"Council officers deserve great credit for pulling this application together in such a short time frame. I am hopeful that their efforts will pay off."
