South Armagh maintenance conditions discussed at recent meeting

South armaghSinn Féin Councillor Terry Hearty has met with the Ground Maintenance Officer from the Housing Executive.

The Slieve Gullion representative met with the Officer in Crossmaglen recently after inviting him to the area to view maintenance conditions for himself.

“I took him on a tour of the area pointing out the botched grass cuttings in housing estates, with grass only cut in patches and dead grass lying heaped on the ground like hay,” he said.


“Thankfully he assured me that the grass now would be cut every two weeks,” he revealed.

“We also looked at a number of pathways that were overgrown and visited St Joseph’s Place where a small patch of ground belonging to the Housing Executive, close to the school, has a number of issues with weeds, fencing and a gate that has fallen onto the footpath.


“We then went to Culloville where there were also a number of issues regarding grass cutting, pathways and general maintenance.

Hearty continued, “While there we met with the Culloville Residents Group who had concerns about an entrance that lead onto the main road where children could run out and they asked that a gate or a barrier be erected to prevent anything happening.


“I also asked that as Loughross becomes more popular in the Summer months if we could put additional bins at the lake and ensure they are emptied daily.

“He took on board all my concerns and we agreed to meet again in a number of weeks to assess the maintenance of our housing estates.
