The Department for Social Development has been working with both Down District Council and Newry and Mourne District Council to produce a Regeneration Master plan for the South East Coast area. The plan aims to develop the towns of Newcastle, Kilkeel and Warrenpoint over a period of 20 years by attracting investment and realising development opportunities. The public consultation is launched this week (Wednesday 21st March) and SDLP Councillor Connaire McGreevy said he wanted as many people as possible to take a look at the plans and give comments. Speaking to Newry Times he said, “In Warrenpoint there is a one-way system proposed with potential development sites at Clonallon Park and the Baths. These are key issues that the public need to give their views on.” Councillor Connaire McGreevy said he welcomed this proposal and is optimistic about future plans to revitalise the coastal area. He continued, “This Master Plan has the potential to kick-start the sustainable development of key towns in Newry and Mourne. I am determined that this document once complete will not sit on the shelves of history.” He added, “The document will be the lobby tool of choice for all Councillors that care about the 3 towns involved, Kilkeel, Warrenpoint and Newcastle”.
