SDLP South Down MLA Karen McKevitt has welcomed Environment Minister Alex Attwood’s statement to the Assembly this week outlining that the correct procedure was in place at all times throughout the Narrow Water Bridge Project planning process. Ms McKevitt said: “I welcome the Minister’s statement. The people of South Down and Louth believe that the decision was right. They believe that, as the Minister said, it is an example of good practice and good planning. “I welcome the pre-application discussions that took place between June 2008 and February 2012 and before the full application. I also welcome the fact that the minister stated that he wishes those pre-application discussions to be part of the Planning Bill that he will bring before the Assembly. She added, “Given that, in my opinion and that of the people of South Down, the Narrow Water Bridge project application is a fine example of how to come to a decision through the PAD process, how can anyone claim that the process was anything other than correct?”
