ALEX EASTON MLA RECEIVES WORD FROM THE MOD ON FUTURE OF KINEGAR HOLYWOOD.

Alex Easton  has today received word on the future of the plans for the future of Kinnegar Logistic Base in Holywood.

Speaking today Alex Easton  said:

“I am pleased to see from the letter, that there will be no job losses and that staff will be redeployed. It would appear that the MOD are in  contact with the Ards and North Down Council to look at plans on how to potential use the site”

“Plans taht are being considered are more housing and potential commercial use. These plans seem to be at an early stage, as the MOD won’t be disposing of the site until 2022. This could potentially be a very exciting future for the site, but there must be a public consultation with residents of Kinegar and Holywood before any final decisions are taken.”
