Seán Neeson MLA said: “I very much welcome decision to give the go ahead for the development of Magheramorne quarry. This project will create many much-needed jobs in the area and it has the potential to become one of Northern Ireland’s major tourist attractions.
“Given that Alliance has been campaigning for a green approach to be taken to help us address the impact of the economic downturn, I am very glad to see this initiative being approved.
“This investment is very substantial and could lead to the creation of other jobs in the surrounding areas too. East Antrim has had a difficult time in relation to the economy, so this development is particularly significant.”
