Councillor Brian Mattock : 11th March 2010
On 11th March Fionuala, Mike and I, your three ward councillors held a meeting for residents and their representatives at the Civic Offices. The packed agenda for that meeting of the Old Town and Lawn Area Panel included many items raised by residents where we were able to update them on matters of interest and concern to local people.
Residents of the panel were delighted to hear the plans for the transfer of the library facility in Victoria Rd. into the Arts Centre to create a cultural hub and bring together services and opportunities for all ages within one building. We were able to confirm that the Council had now approved the finance to allow this important project to proceed. A public display of the plans and ideas will be launched and held shortly.
