“Get the Gaelic Sports Ground back in use!” was the verdict of Clive Efford following the decision of the council last night to refuse to redisignate the land to allow it to be built on by developers.
Clive added, “We were placed in this position by the planning inspector who came to the conclusion that the land should be developed. There is no justification for this decision other than the land has been vacant for a long time. On this basis, any owner of open space can hold their land derelict ignore every approach to bring it back into use and then claim that these is no alternative other than to build on it. This not the way to make planning decisions.”
The land must be brought in to use as a sports ground and this issue will be finished for good.
