Martin welcomes tree cutting


Councillor Stephen Martin has welcomed a commitment to clean-up works on a Council-owned wooded area near to the scene of a recent fatality on the Hillsborough Road, in Lisburn.

Mr Martin stated, “The Council have confirmed that the necessary works started on Sunday and continue for up to four Sundays with partial road closures expected from 7am until midday.

“While it might prove temporarily inconvenient, we can’t allow the tragedy to pass without making sure any risks in the area within our control are managed.

“I want to thank the resident who highlighted the matter and all the Environmental Services staff involved.”
