Alex Easton MLA and Councillor Wesley Irvine in partnership with Down Capacity Building Initiative joined forces to tackle the on growing weed growth problem at Clanmorris Square and Clanmorris Avenue, footpaths.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“Both myself and Councillor Wesley Irvine recognize there is a serious issue of weed growth on the footpaths in the area, and are delighted to have joined forces with Down Capacity Building Initiative to try and remove the weed growth from the footpaths in the Clanmorris Square, and Clanmorris Avenue, area of Whitehill.”

“I would praise the efforts of Down Capacity Building Initiative who like me are concerned at the lack of weed spraying being carried out by Transport NI one weed spray during the summer is not enough, and action needs to be taken by TNI.”

“I believe that the footpaths in the area needs to be resurfaced as I believe that the amount of weed growth is making it a danger for the local residents. The shocking thing was that we actually found a footpath that has been hidden with weed growth. I hope the work we have done today will help to improve the safety of the footpaths in this area, and also make it look better looking for the local residents, there is also a plan to hopefully do more footpaths in the area.”
