Alex Easton MLA is delighted at new fencing being erected by the Housing Executive and NI Electricity at garages at St Gallens Place.
Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:
“For some time both myself and the Whitehill Community Association have received complaints of youth throwing stones at people’s homes from the top of the garages at St Gallens Place, Whitehill. The garages themselves are easily accessed and were also a serious Health & Safety hazard for individuals who could assess the roof of the garages. With this in mind both I and the Whitehill Community Association contacted the Housing Executive and NI Electricity and held a site meeting. It was agreed by both the Housing Executive and NI Electricity as a joint way forward, for both the Housing Executive and NI Electricity to pay for and erect fencing to stop people having access to the roof of the garages. I am delighted this has happed and I believe this will help to reduce Anti-Social Behaviour and address a serious Health and Safety issue.
