January 4, 2013
Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has welcomed the granting of planning permission for new showgrounds at the Long Kesh/Maze prison site.
The North Belfast MLA said:
“There has been work going on to try and develop this site for a considerable period of time and this decision is a welcome step in the right direction.
“The beginning of the regeneration of this former prison camp site is a sign of the changing times and one that should benefit everyone in the North.
“We look forward to the further regeneration of the whole site so as to maximise its economic, historic and reconciliation potential.”
