Trevor Lunn MLA said: “This is good news for Lisburn and for the Northern Ireland’s economy.
“Lisburn is a city going places both from a n economic and a tourism perspective. The city of Lisburn is a key economic driver for Northern Ireland. It’s a great city to visit with many things to do in the area, and it also represents an excellent and central location to base any holiday in Northern Ireland.
“There are concerns about plans as regards some environmental issues, but I very much hope that the Environment Minister’s conditions imposed on the project will ensure that these concerns are addressed effectively. I hope the project is implemented in a sympathetic way which respects the natural beauty of the area and the importance of the Lagan to the community.”
