Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has welcomed the decision by the Diocesan Trust to put the former site of St Patrick’s training school in West Belfast up for sale commenting that this could be of benefit to the whole community.

 The West Belfast MP said,

 “The sale of this site unlocks potential for much needed development in both social and affordable housing in West Belfast.

 “Used as a mixed site, this sale also has the chance to develop educational, health and retail opportunities bringing jobs and prosperity to the area.

 “We must now ensure that the infrastructure for this to happen is put in place and that the buyer of this site consults with and takes account of the wants and needs of the local community.”
