Have your say

Newtownabbey Borough Council has been awarded £80,000 to tackle decay and dereliction in the area.

Outgoing Environment Minister Alex Attwood said the funds would be used to enhance the environment and in turn boost tourism and local trade.

He said the dereliction funding scheme was going from strength to strength.

The money was confirmed by Finance Minister Sammy Wilson two weeks ago as part of the June Monitoring round.
