Town centre revamp plans just for show

Published 02/01/2012

I WONDER if anyone with any gravitas in Northern Ireland can recall ambitious masterplans before the last election for makeovers of places like Lisburn?

These masterplans were intended to improve the urban environment and transport provision, together with urban regeneration and cultural facilities.

Alas, I gather, with the recession, these plans appear to have been mothballed by the dignitaries we elected the last time.

I wonder whether any of the members of the current Muppet Show masquerading as Lisburn City Council or in the Assembly are at all interested in improving the lot of their respective towns?

A happy (dreary) 2012 to one and all.
