I am seeking assurances from the Regional Development Minister in relation to a long term project to reduce flooding in South Belfast.
Yesterday evening we witnessed another example of snap floods that cause havoc and distress to traffic and households in Belfast. I was in the constituency last night visiting constituents, and there is understandable anger amongst people whose homes are repeatedly flooded
I acknowledge the work of the emergency services, who did a good job helping people. More needs to be done to deliver a long term solution. The Glenmachan strategy project aims to deal with flooding problems in large parts of South Belfast, last nights difficulties highlights the need to advance this. I will be raising this matter with the Minister for Regional Development, seeking assurances that sufficient resources are committed to the project.
