Sinn Féin MLA for South Belfast Alex Maskey has welcomed the next step in the advancement of the Stadia projects for Windsor Park, Ravenhill and Casement Park.

This follows the announcement that planning permission has now been granted for the development at Windsor Park.

Speaking from Windsor Park Alex Maskey said:

“The granting of planning permission for the development of Windsor Park is an important next step in the Stadia projects brought forward by the Culture, Arts and Leisure Minister Carál Ní Chuilín.

“The investment of £110m for the three projects, Ravenhill, Windsor Park and Casement has lifted sport from the three major codes across the city and indeed the north and is one of the biggest capital projects that the Executive is bringing forward in the current term.

“This is a huge boost for South Belfast and the local economy and we look forward to the development of the three sports grounds.

“I have already recently met with senior officials from the IFA to discuss the plans and how the local community and those living in the vicinity of Windsors Park can benefit from this project.”
