Sinn Féin Councillor Dermot Nicholl has welcomed the start of work to clear up the Glen area of Greysteel.
Colr. Nicholl said: “I am glad this work has begun as a result of my persistence in getting this area tidied up. The upper part of the Glen has long been neglected with pathways and even play parks becoming overgrown.
“This area has become a hub for anti social behaviour such as drug and alchohol consumption and even drug dealing. I would call on those who have engaged in these activities in the past to respect the area as the work is onoing and once complete. I believe the work being done here can contribute to a great sense of community spirit, which will hopefully lead to community clean ups etc. and a sense of pride in the village.
“This is only the beginning of continued work which, I hope, will take place here. The first phase, which is clearing the pathways, will be of great use to dog walkers and joggers.”
