Derg Sinn Féin councillor Ruairí Mc Hugh has welcomed recent work by the Housing Executive to landscape an area of unsightly land in the Hillview Park estate in Castlederg, he said '' This issue had been highlighted by local residents in a constituency survey carried out by Sinn Féin members last year. The area of land in question had become quite unsightly and some what dangerous to pedestrians and children as flagstones had been damaged and upturned over the passage of time '' I have constantly lobbied and raised this issue with Housing Executive requesting that they address this issue, and having agreed to carry out remedial works the Housing Executive following consultation with residents, have now completed the landscaping and implementation of a new footpath which should be complete in the near future '' This is a good example of statutory bodies like the housing Executive working with political representative to meet the needs of a community and I would commend everyone involved in bringing this about''.
