Bannside Councillor Roy Gillespie has welcomed confirmation that refurbishment of Cullybackey Community Centre is scheduled to start by the end of the year.

In an update to a Council committee last week, Officer Aidan Donnelly said the scheme “should be on site this year” and that all the work would be carried out in-house.

While the outcome of the planning application was still awaited, he said, community consultations were on-going, the Business Case had been approved through Council and Centre users had been advised to seek alternative accommodation.

Cllr Gillespie said: “I’m really pleased it will be going ahead this year, this will be a big improvement for Cullybackey.”
