‘Business as usual’

THE council has assured Valley Park users that it is “business as usual” at the O’Neill Road facility.

Regular park users have claimed the park is being “run down” as the council is considering using part of the green space for a new cemetery site.

However, in a statement to the Times, Newtownabbey Borough Council refuted the claims.

It stated: “The council would like to assure users of the Valley Park that it is business as usual for the park. All normal maintenance schedules, grass cutting schedules and visits to the park by council parks wardens are as normal.”
