SINN Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper has welcomed the news that a major environmental scheme is to take place in the Glenview area this weekend.
The event will take place this Saturday, May 18, between 3.00 pm and 4.30pm at the laneway between Glenview Street and Glenview Avenue.
He said: “Over the last few months I have been working closely with both the Glen Development Initiative and the council on a major environmental improvement scheme which will see the removal of rubbish and other debris from the mews lanes in the Glenview area.
“The next stage will take place this coming Saturday with the installation of planter trays and hanging baskets made by the GDI Men’s Shed which can be used by local residents to plant their own flowers and plants in the mews lanes.
“I would ask residents to gather at the laneway between Glenview Street / Avenue 3.00pm and 4.30pm
“In tandem with this initiative the Council will start the roll out of a pilot recycling scheme for which I obtained funding for last year.
“This will see all houses in the area visited to ensure that they have adequate numbers of blue and black bins.
“Taken together I hope these schemes will greatly reduce incidents of fly tipping and greatly improve the appearance of the entire Glen area,” he added.
