Drumaness walkways require urgent attention - Hazzard

November 7, 2018

South Down MLA Chris Hazzard has raised the issue of poorly maintained walkways in Drumaness with local agencies and says that he expects 'a quick and effective response.'

The local Assemblyman said:

'I have contacted Down District Council, the Housing Executive, and the Roads Service this week to relay the frustration that local people are experiencing due to the increasingly poor state of walkways and footpaths throughout the village.

'During the early stages of a recent Community Action Plan I raised the increasing problem of Dog Fouling on popular walkways throughout the village and the urgent need for new dog foul bins. Seeing as this problem is as bad as ever, I have now asked Council for an update on the progress of these much awaited bins.

'I have also raised the issue of unsafe paving with the agencies, as various paths remain poorly maintained and a real hazard for elderly pedestrians in the winter months.

Mr Hazzard added:

'During the winter months especially it is vital that our walkways remain as safe as possible so I would hope that the various agencies involved in this issue respond in a quick and effective manner.'
