Residents voice concerns over new pitch's proximity to homes

RESIDENTS of Millhouse Dale in Antrim are calling for the relocation of multi-million pound sports pitches away from their homes.

Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council has been working with Antrim Grammar and Parkhall Integrated College to bring forward proposals for the development, which will see an existing shale pitch be replaced, fenced and floodlit.

The pitches would be used by schools on Monday to Friday up to 5pm and up to 1pm on Saturday, while the council would facilitate bookings in the evenings and weekends for sports clubs and other bodies.
