Knock back for Knock Road! thumbnailDUP Cllr Alan McLean.

THE proposed upgrade of the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council's Knock Road Depot in Ballymoney has taken yet another 'knock back'.
A senior council officer requested a last minute deferral at last week's full council meeting.
Councillors were due to make a final decision at that meeting on which of four options they would take forward, ranging from 368,000 down to 220,000.
This would provide necessary new facilities meeting H&S legislation as well as providing office space, a canteen, separate male and female toilets, locker rooms and showers and a disabled toilet.
However the Director of Environmental Services Mr Aiden McPeake asked if members would consider deferring the matter.
“We have identified an alternate option and would like to explore it," he said adding that it would involve consultation with unions and staff.
Ballymoney DUP Cllr Alan McLean said: "Back at the October meeting I was reassured that accommodation at the site would be made suitable for workers. What has been done?"
“Nothing has been done yet," Mr McPeake replied.
