17 May, 2016 - by Oliver McMullan

Sinn Féin MLA Oliver McMullan has said concerns about the exploratory drilling at Woodburn Forest should be a priority for the new Executive. 

Mr McMullan said; 

"News that exploratory drilling has started in Woodburn Forest near Carrickfergus is concerning. 

"There are genuine concerns in the local community around Woodburn Forest about the potential impact this drilling could have on the environment. 

"I have visited the site and met with members of the campaign group and with representatives of the company behind the drilling, Infrastrata. 

"I am once again calling on Infrastrata to meet with local residents and campaigners to discuss the concerns around this development.

"This issue should be a priority for the new Executive."
