“I am always keen to do whatever I can to promote and develop the local economy, and, as a member of the Causeway Coast and Glens Council Planning Committee, it was my pleasure to propose the approval of plans for a major new retail outlet in Ballymoney. I am delighted that my proposal was accepted.

This is good news on several fronts. The £2 million development will create 40 jobs and bring much needed retail investment to the town. In addition, I am very pleased that the contract has been awarded to a Ballymoney construction firm. All of this represents a huge shot in the arm for a town which has suffered significant economic decline in recent years, and I look forward to work commencing as soon as possible.
