Success with Spafield carpark lighting - Muir

I welcome a commitment from Ards and North Down Borough Council to provide lighting in Holywood's Spafield public carpark.

Spafield is one of the few free carparks in Holywood and so is very popular. Unfortunately with the dark nights the lack of lighting can result in pedestrians being put at risk from motorists. Following representations made to me I raised this with the Council, and am pleased to have received a positive result for users, whether sportspeople using the nearby 3G pitch, shoppers and business people, Parishioners attending St Colmcille’s Church, visitors to Spafield and Loughview Folds or Sullivan school parents and students.

I have a commitment from the Council that lighting will be installed at Spafield before the end of this financial year. This is very welcome and I appreciate the speedy response from Council.
