DSD announcements can’t continue to lack substance – Ní Chuilín

5 November, 2009 - by Carál Ní Chuilín

Sinn Féin MLA for north Belfast Carál Ní Chuilín has called on Social Development Minister Margaret Ritchie to get on with the job of delivering for local communities.

Speaking after a meeting of the Social Development Committee today Ms Ní Chúilín said;

“The reality for many communities across Belfast is that they are hearing announcement after announcement on master plan after master plan yet nothing tangible is materialising for them.

At present my own constituency of north Belfast has six different master plans floating in the air with Margaret Ritchie lauding each on. Consultation is good and we support that, however, there comes a time when we must act and get on with the job of delivering for people because quite frankly, that is what they expect from us.

I would call on the Minister and her Department to ease up on seeking publicity around the launch of ‘plans’ for areas and get a bit more serious with the job of improving the quality of life in the area’s themselves.” CRÍOCH
