Councillors to consider renaming Broughshane Play Park and Glynn bridge to mark Jubilee

Two community organisations have sought permission from Mid and East Antrim Borough Council to rename local assets in recognition of the Queen‘s Platinum Jubilee.

Broughshane Community Play Park Association have approached the Council via TUV Braid Councillor Christopher Jamison with a proposal to name the refurbished Play Park at Knockan Road, Broughshane.

The Play Park in Broughshane was refurbished in 2019 with a £150,000 makeover, just prior to the pandemic and associated lockdowns.

Meanwhile, members of the Glynn Community Group have asked for a new bridge installed in the Glynn’s Jubilee Park be officially opened and named the ‘Jubilee Bridge.’

The bridge over the Glynn River at Jubilee Park was to be officially opened prior

to the Covid - 19 pandemic, but, due to lockdown restrictions, this opening was

unable to be progressed.

A report to Council stated that an Equality Screening process has been carried out on the proposed naming of the bridge and the play park, which resulted in a

recommendation that further screening was not required.

The item will discussed at a meeting of full council on Monday evening, 9 May.
