Welcome for court injunctions on four illegal bonfire sites - Cllr McVeigh

7 July, 2017 - by Jim McVeigh


Sinn Féin group leader on Belfast City Council, Cllr Jim McVeigh, has welcomed the issuing of court injunctions on four Belfast Council owned sites where bonfire material has been gathered.

Speaking today Cllr McVeigh said:

“I welcome the issuing of these injunction on four Belfast Council owned sites. Sinn Féin called for injunctions such as these to be taken this week in order to protect Council property.

“The gathering and storing of materials has disrupted the use of some of these sites and by burning of these large pyres Council property would be further destroyed. That is not what the rate payers of this city want to see or indeed pay for.  

“It is now critically important that the PSNI and Belfast City Council act upon these injunctions to ensure that the dangerous material already gathered at these sites is safely removed in order to protect the people, homes and property in the vicinity of these illegal bonfires.”
