SDLP Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham has welcomed the news that DOE Minister Alex Attwood has approved funding of £100,000 to deal with decay and dereliction in the Moyle area.

 Councillor Cunningham who chairs the “Revitalise Ballycastle” steering group which is seeking funding to deal with the regeneration of the town centre, and in particular the conservation areas of Castle Street and Clare Street said:

 “Not for the first time the Minister has been able to show the ability to invest unspent monies into the built environment of coastal towns and villages.”

“It is hoped that this intervention will help to stabilise trade in our towns and villages, improve our tourist and visitor appeal, and build up respect for the conservation and unique appeal of our streetscape and built heritage.”

 “On top of Ministers Attwood’s funding if the “Revitalise” project was successful it could offer grants to improve historic buildings within Castle Street and Clare Street to enhance the historical character of the buildings and contribute to an improvement in the local economy as well as remaining an attractive place to visit.”
