EFFORTS are being made to stop the flooding which takes place outside the local shop in Carew Park.
At a regeneration meeting for councillors, City East Sinn Fein member Séighin Ó Ceallaigh sought an update on works being put in place to stop the flooding.
Cllr Ó Ceallaigh says at present, parts of Carew Park are inaccessible when it rains.
“Residents cannot drive through this part of the estate when there is any considerable amount of rainfall, which means that the may have to travel the whole way around the estate just to get to the opposite side of the flooding. With the winter approaching, which means more rainfall, it is good to see that this problem is being tackled.”
He added: “Residents of the estate have had to deal with flooding for quite some time. I am sure that they will be happy to hear that soon they will be able to drive through all of Carew Park in all weather, with the issue being looked at. Community spirit can be lifted by local politicians, regeneration workers and local residents working for the benefit of the area.”
