ALLIANCE Party Newcastle area Councillor Patrick Clarke has welcomed the removal of electrical items from Dam Lane and also tyres and bulky items from the lane between Castlehill and the Dromara road in Dundrum which were dumped a number of weeks ago.
Councillor Patrick Clarke had requested Down District Council to lift the dumped electrical items, tyres and bulky items from both popular walkways and has also requested new signage to be erected in both locations warning against dumping.
Councillor Patrick Clarke said: “I welcome the removal of these items. Down District Council removed these items following a request from me due to a number of complaints from Dundrum constituents.
“Both these laneways in Dundrum are popular walkways for adults and children and are used daily, so the dumping of these items was a health and safety hazzard by those responsible for littering the walkways.
“I also welcome Down District Council agreeing to erecting signage up at both Dam lane and the laneway between Dromara Road and Castlehill in the coming weeks warning against dumping.”
