McGreevy urges public to engage with village renewal plans

Rostrevor and Killowen are among 13 village clusters undergoing a Village Renewal and Development Plan which aims to create a document to guide the regeneration of the areas over the next decade. As the consultation stage is now underway Crotlieve Councillor Connaire McGreevy has stressed the importance of the engagement of local people in the process.

Cllr McGreevy said: “It is absolutely crucial that people from the Killowen and Rostrevor areas participate in the planning of the village renewal strategy. By engaging with the process you will be able to make a significant contribution to improving the local area. I urge everyone who feels they have some useful input to contact either myself or the District Development Department within Council and make their voices heard.”

McGreevy said he feels really positive about the Village Renewal Plan and reiterated his belief that it is a key opportunity for people in Killowen and Rostrevor to play a part in the development of the area. “There is still time to input to the process with just over a week left until the close of the initial stages. I would like to praise the people that have already fed in to the process including other councillors.”

He added, “It is important that the process is seen as one that will benefit all the people.”
