McCann welcomes Ross Street Cottages demolition

13 June, 2011 - by Fra McCann

Sinn Féin MLA Fra Mc Cann for West Belfast has welcomed the decision by the Housing Executive to move ahead with the demolition of Ross Street Cottages tomorrow morning.

Mr McCann stated,

“I have supported the local residents in the campaign to have the Ross Street Cottages and adjacent flats demolished and I am delighted that this campaign has now come to fruition and the demolition will now begin tomorrow.

“This area has been the center of anti-community activity in the area and having them demolished will help ease that problem.

“It is important for the regeneration of this part of the Falls Road that these flats and cottages are replaced with quality homes that will allow a beginning for the local area."
