Green Party Deputy Leader and North Belfast Councillor Mal O’Hara has said he is delighted at a proposal to create a new 250-acre woodland close to Cavehill Country Park.
Cllr Malachia O’Hara said:
“This is great news for the people of North Belfast and beyond. This woodland will be right on our doorstep and will help create happier, healthier communities by widening access to what will be a beautiful natural space.
"The woodland and grasslands have the potential to contribute to ongoing efforts to combat climate change and will become a habitat for nature.
“I’d like to thank the Woodland Trust for their vision in acquiring the site and look forward to seeing their plans in more detail.”
