A SECOND phase of improvements to Ballymoney's Riverside Park is a "high priority" and looks set to be on the council Capital Projects List in the near future.
That's what Director of Environmental Services Mr Aidan McPeake told Causeway Coast and Glens councillors attending last week's Environmental Services committee meeting.
The matter was raised by two different councillors at the meeting, with UUP Cllr Darryl Wilson wanting "drastic changes" in respect of untidyness and safety.
However the matter was first raised by DUP Cllr Ian Stevenson during a discussion about the 61 capital projects, CC&G is currently taking forward. He wanted to know why Riverside Park was not on the list.
Mr McPeake said that this was one of a number of 'Priority Projects' that would be added to the Capital Project List when it was looked at again.
“Riverside Park is high on that priority list and we would hope to add it in following a workshop being planned to discuss the park," he added.
