Improvement funds secured for town centre

‘Core streets’ in Ballymena Town Centre could be in line for a revamp early next

scheme.

A spokesperson for Ballymena Council said: “Our consultants, having listened to the views of a wide range of town centre users over the last number of months, have applied international best practice design solutions to address the specific opportunities and challenges in Ballymena.
