Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper has welcomed the news that funding has been secured for a new gate to be installed at a hotpot for anti community activity which has plagued residents living in the area of Rosemount.
Councillor Cooper said “I have been working with the PCSP, PSNI and the Glen Development Initiative to secure funding for a gate to be installed at Lower Nassau Street where one particular mews lane has long been used as a gathering point for drinking. And also as a rat run for those who have been engaged in anti-social behaviour in the area.
I have worked with residents in a number of other streets in the Rosemount area including Epworth Street, Ernest Street and elsewhere to install similar schemes in the past and all have seen the incidents of anti community activity in their area dramatically reduce.I expect the same results in Lower Nassau once the gate in installed.
Hopefully it will help local residents to feel safe in their homes and remove the various anti-community issues which have blighted the community in recent years”.
