Newry Chamber of Commerce has said it is ‘broadly supportive’ of the new Greenbank development. Newry Times exclusively revealed last week that up to 1,130 new jobs could be created at the site. Orla Jackson, Chief Executive of Newry Chamber, spoke to Newry Times and stated, “Newry Chamber of Commerce is broadly supportive of any development within the city centre limits. The Chamber supported this application and welcomes any proposals for the creation of jobs in the city. This decision gives only outline planning consent therefore the proposed jobs are a number of years away.” “However the key to progressing this development is the fulfillment of the commitment by the ABP that the current jobs in the Newry plant will be retained within the Newry area – if not there could be a serious threat to existing jobs. Therefore the Chamber would welcome a statement from ABP re-affirming their commitment to keep the existing job in the Newry area.” She added, “There are also issues around access to the site which we are sure Road Service and DOE will work to resolve in the coming years.” Related articles: 1,130 new jobs to be created in Newry Bradley welcomes Greenbank planning decision Irwin welcomes Newry jobs announcement
