ARCHES granted funding

A PROJECT to demolish the old Police Station in Randalstown is looking to benefit from using potential Dereliction Intervention Funding.

The initiative is run by the Department of Environment and is used to address areas where dereliction is an increasing issue.

Members at last Thursday’s meeting of Antrim Council’s Development and Leisure Committee agreed to allocate the Arches Association an estimated £25,000 for the scheme.

The site is currently owned by ARCHES and therefore meets this element of the funding criteria.

For a scheme to be granted funding there is specific criteria that must be met including benefits to tourism and contribution to regeneration and tackling the social need.

The station will be demolished and replaced with up to 50 additional car parking spaces and new public toilets to support the town centre.
