Ballymena town centre set for revamp

Author: Ashley Curtis - 06 December 2012

Around £4 million is to be invested in the regeneration of Ballymena town centre, reports

The Northern Irish town's plans for development include creating a focal point and public space at Broadway, along with providing a 'completely new look and feel to the whole town centre'.

Furthermore, the regeneration plans include the use of bespoke street lighting, street furniture, bins and signage. It will also promote a shared space so that people are given priority over traffic and high quality materials, such as Caithness stone, will be used in building the areas.

The project will be delivered by Ballymena Borough Council and has been given the thumbs up after a 'thorough public consultation process' this summer, reports

P J McEvoy, Mayor of Ballymena, commented on the investment: "This announcement is a great Christmas present to Ballymena. We, in council, set out two years ago to create an ambitious and ground-breaking Public Realm Strategy, which put people first.

"We hope, through energetic management and thoughtful design, the town centre streets and spaces will come alive with people. They will be welcomed to the town centre, not only to shop and to work, but to relax, to play, to learn and to enjoy," he added.
