Newry and Armagh Alliance representative Jackie Coade has welcomed an application to build a Greenway from Carlingford to the border.

The planning application is a part of the Carlingford Lough Greenway Initiative linking Carlingford to Victoria Lough and then to Newry.

 

 

When finished it will be a 19km link between Newry City and Carlingford Village.

Speaking to Newry Times, Ms Coade said, “I very much welcome this amazing initiative to link Carlingford to Newry via a greenway which is linked to the coast and promotes walking and cycling.

“Recently I called for more green initiatives in Newry and Armagh and this greenway has massive potential for the area.

 

 

“Green initiatives have the potential of unlocking tourism within Newry and Armagh and promoting health and wellbeing amongst the public.

“I will continue to advocate locally for more green initiatives within Newry and Armagh,” she added.

 

 

An application for full planning permission is expected to be submitted this month with work to potentially commence in 2021.
