Maskey calls for short-term moratorium on Glassmullin Gardens development

1 October, 2019 - by Alex Maskey

Speaking on the controversy on a proposed development at Glassmullin Gardens in Andersonstown local Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey said:

“I am disappointed that the community and La Salle school are in conflict about the proposed development by the school of a green field site at Glassmullin Gardens, which has resulted in a stand-off between residents and contractors.

“I have engaged with the local community and a residents’ group and with the school.

“I have urged them to engage in dialogue, facilitated by independents who have a track record in community projects, to find a way forward.

"Even at this late hour I believe it is possible to find a solution to meet the needs of the local community and the school. 

“I have contacted the Permanent Secretary of the Department of Education to ask for a short-term moratorium on the project to enable such a dialogue to take place.”
