Mc Hugh welcomes progress on Glebe issues

Published: 8 October, 2013

Sinn Féin Councillor Maolíosa Mc Hugh has welcomed progress on a number of issues on which he has been making representations on behalf of residents of the Glebe.

He said,

"A directional sign for Sperrin View has now to be installed on the main Peacock Road, following representations I made to Council on behalf of local residents who citied the constant problems visitors and delivery people have in locating their homes because of the absence of such signage.

"I am still waiting upon Roads Service to action my request for a stop sign to be installed at the junction within Sperrin View following complaints I have received about a number of near misses at this point. Roads Service has agreed that this is needed so I am hopeful that this can be processed as quickly as possible.

"Also on foot of representations to Strabane District Council's Technical Dept on behalf of local residents, missing and damaged sections of wooden fencing running form St Theresa's Primary up to the Community Centre have been either replaced or repaired

"This remedial work is important for health and safety reasons given that it provides protection to youngsters who use the recreation/green area from the adjoining Garvan Road as well as enhancing the general appearance of the area.

"Following further representations to Council, a litter bin has been installed in the 'The Paddock' residential development and this will greatly assist in the voluntary efforts of a resident who gives so freely of his time and energy to cut the grass and maintain the green area fronting the development.

"I am continuing to work to progress a number of other issues on behalf of the people in the Glebe and look forward to positive results on these shortly."
