Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley has highlighted concerns expressed by residents in relation to overgrown trees bordering St. Eithne’s Park.
Cllr. McGinley said: “ Over a period of time a number of representations have been made to myself from residents who have expressed concern at the invasive nature of overgrown trees and shrubbery on the embankments bordering St. Eithne’s Park and Ardgrange.
I have been attempting to establish who has responsibility for maintaining the landscapes within Ardgrange with a view to ensuring that all trees and foliage are regularly inspected.
Having also spoken to Habinteg it has now been confirmed that they will initiate a maintenance programme within the next couple of months and this work will be greatly welcomed by residents in St. Eithne’s Park.
It is important that residents in housing estates have access to regular maintenance of the surrounding environments and I will continue to work with the agencies which have this responsibility.”
