Belfast Wheel should stay – Cllr Conor Maskey
Sinn Féin Belfast City Councillor Conor Maskey has criticised the decision to remove the ‘Belfast Wheel’ from its current location adjacent to City Hall.
Speaking today Mr Maskey said;
“I am dismayed at the delay within planning that seemingly has caused the decision to remove or relocate the Belfast Wheel.
The reality is that this attraction has drawn thousands of visitors, tourists and Belfast citizens into the heart of our City Centre and has become immediately identifiable within our city’s landscape.
For those employed at the Belfast Wheel, today’s announcement will leave them in a deeply uncertain situation and it seems their rights have been overlooked in all of this; Sinn Féin will stand by them. Our record in support of the Belfast Wheel initiative within Council has been one hundred percent and we will continue to play our role in ensuring that what has become a much valued city asset is retained for all the benefits is clearly brings.” CRÍOCH
