Councillor Roisin Mulgrew has called for a meeting with NI Water to address the concerns of residents regarding ongoing and future building projects in the Lislea area.

Councillor Mulgrew in Lislea

The Sinn Fein representative says it is extremely important that NI Water attend any future meetings. “While I was grateful to the Housing Executive and the Oaklee Trinity housing association for turning up to meet with residents I was deeply disappointed that NI Water did not attend, nor indeed acknowledge the meeting. “All those present appreciated the need for a limited amount of social housing within the area but voiced concerns about the capacity of sewage and drainage facilities. “A number of months ago NI Water attended a meeting in the council offices and followed this with a site meeting in Lislea where an assurance was given that the source of an intolerable stench in the Calmor/Redmond area would be found. “They have still not lived up to that assurance and for the people of this area to be left with a stench that has rendered properties worthless and made residents’ lives intolerable is not acceptable. “On behalf of the residents I call on NI Water to come to a public meeting with them and the developers to discuss openly these concerns and to put in place an action plan. She added, “I would also add that a meeting will take place on traffic management and safety issues in the area on March 5.”
