Newry City Sinn Féin Councillor Charlie Casey has said the overwhelming opposition by the local community and user groups in relation to the sale of Jennings Park for development as a Health Centre Hub was a clear enough indication there was no support for the sale option. Jennings ParkSpeaking to Newry Times, Casey insisted this was not a reflection on the proposal of a Health Hub facility, but on the fact that the vast majority of locals do not believe that this is the site for it. “I always felt that this would be the outcome but I am content that the consultation process agreed by Council was the correct procedure to record that opposition. “A decision should now be taken by Council to inform those who had come to the Council with their proposals which included the sale of Jennings Park, that it is no longer a viable option and that they should pursue other more appropriate sites for consideration. Casey added, “That is what I expect to happen when the Council discuss the matter this week.” More on this story: McAteer expresses concern over Jennings Park sale
