Newry City Alliance representative Helena Young has called on the public to take part in the public consultation for the Albert Basin Park.

Speaking to Newry Times, Helena stated, “I am delighted that we are now in this consultation process.



“I would like to encourage all members of the public to participate and engage in the survey and the online workshops, as part of the consultation process for the Albert Basin Park Project.

“It is really important that the public have their say.



“We have waited a long time for our City Park and hope that this consultation will signify positive movement in the delivery of the project.

“The park will provide a very much needed green, recreational space which will have a hugely positive effect on the physical and mental well-being for the people of Newry and beyond.

“I would like to see a realistic timeline for delivery of the park and updated, transparent progress information shared with the public.”
