Fews area Sinn Féin Councillor Pat McGinn has said that the burnt out factory at the Millvale Road is still causing major concerns to local residents. Speaking to Newry Times, McGinn said the property is a major eyesore and there is also a major health and safety fear about the current state it is in. He stated, “I recently discussed the issue with the Council’s  Environmental Health Department who to be fair have been trying their utmost to take appropriate action, but are confined legally on how they can make progress.” “Notices had been served on the owners of the property to take action to secure it, but because of complications in relation to the matter of liquidation, progress has been virtually at a standstill. There is a hope that the site will soon be sold and that the new owners will resolve these issues of concern.” The Sinn Fein elected representative, who lives close to the site, also spoke of his disappointment that a lock and chain which Newry & Mourne Council had put on the premises had been cut. “This is not only illegal but dangerous. There is absolutely no reason for anyone to be next or near this dangerous building. These locks and chains were not cut by children. I would urge all to stay away from the building as well as asking anyone who sees any suspicious activity about the place to report it immediately.”
