Seán Neeson MLA stated: “Carrickfergus is a place of massive potential. This masterplan can provide a great boost both to the town and the wider region as Carrickfergus has so much to offer both culturally and economically.
“Carrickfergus is a great town but we need make town centre more user-friendly. This project offers a great chance to do so.
“We need to use the rich history of Carrickfergus and consult widely with local residents and businesses so that these moves benefit all and help attract more tourists.”
