The council has agreed to set up a working group to look into the possibility of establishing a permanent Youth Zone in the borough.

The project, which offers activities for children and young people, currently runs during school holiday periods.

Councillors are hoping to build on its success by setting up a permanent Youth Zone, subject to securing the necessary funding for the projects and commitment from statutory partners.

Councillors Victor Robinson, Mark Cosgrove, Noreen McClelland, Lynn Fraser, Gerry O’Reilly, Fraser Agnew and Dineen Walker will sit on the working group alongside PSCP members and community representatives.
