Thompson working to save Craigowen Lodge in Seahill

Holywood Alliance representative and Council candidate Larry Thompson has welcomed news that work has finally been approved to save Craigowen Lodge in Seahill. Craigowen Lodge is located on the Belfast Road near the Seahill Road junction and was purchased by the Roads Service for a road widening scheme which never materialised.

Commenting on the proposal, Larry remarked: “Craigowen Lodge is a listed building steeped in heritage which simply must be restored and protected. It currently has a tin roof, installed to protect this historic building, following a fire a few years ago. I am delighted to learn that Hearth Housing Association is progressing plans to renovate the building with work due to start on site in 2012/13, subject to relevant approvals and planning.”

Concluding, Larry stated: “It is of paramount importance that funding for organisations such as Hearth continues to secure our heritage and allow historic homes to be used as family homes by future generations.”
