McCarthy welcomed Ards investment announcement

Alliance Strangford MLA Kieran McCarthy has welcomed news of an ambitious new investment project for Newtownards, which will see up to 400 jobs created.

It was announced on Monday planning permission had been granted for a ‘mixed use’ development on the edge of the town.

The MLA for Strangford said: “This announcement is excellent news for the Newtownards area, which will benefit from the various new services available in this new development.

“In a time when the job market remains volatile, this announcement will boost employment opportunities locally and must be celebrated.

“However I should add a word of concern over the amount of time this announcement has taken. This development has been earmarked for many years but due to a flawed planning process these vital services have been denied to local people until now.”
