‘Cranfield Code a pertinent example of cross-border success’ – Hazzard

Speaking at the launch of the updated ‘Cranfield Code’, Sinn Féin MLA Chris Hazzard welcomed the ongoing multi-agency approach to the issue of health and safety, and has called for increased cooperation between agencies in the South Down and North Louth area.
Speaking to Newry Times, Hazzard stated: “The Cranfield Code, which was first launched in 2011 has now been updated in order to make it a truly comprehensive cross-border project– supported by the Irish Coast Guard, Louth Local Authorities, and the Irish Water Safety Council. This health and safety code sets out essential guidelines for visitors, holiday makers and mariners on and offshore at Cranfield, Co Down and Greenore, Co Louth.”
He continued, “Newry & Mourne Council, in tandem with their partners in Louth, must be congratulated for their ongoing work in ensuring that the local area remains a first class visitor experience.”
The South Down MLA also expressed his desire to see “additional projects like this rolled out throughout the east border area”, and has called for “an increase in strategic multi-agency thinking as we strive to maintain and enhance the world famous reputation of our picturesque coastline.”
