Lyttle says Maze site could still host shared stadium

Following the OFMDFM Committee visit to the Maze site, East Belfast Alliance MLA Chris Lyttle has called on the Culture, Arts and Leisure Minister to consider the site for the creation of a new multi-sports shared stadium.

Chris Lyttle MLA said: “The Maze site has so much potential and it would be very sad if political battles saw it’s potential as a location for a shared stadium lost.

“Good progress has been made on the site already – talks are ongoing with the RUAS, Ulster Aviation Society is doing good work there and I believe a shared stadium would complement plans well.

“I call on the new DCAL Minister to re-examine the possibility of building a shared stadium at the site. It would be the ideal venue for this type of project and has the potential to be a key economic driver for the region.

“I believe that creating a shared stadium is the way forward as opposed to the current plans of simply renovating the three existing stadia. We need to be ambitious and we must create a shared future for all, and the creation of a shared stadium would be a very positive development.”
