Last week Newry 2020 hosted an online public meeting with local councillors to discuss the council's plans for Newry City Centre Regeneration.

Commenting on the event afterwards, Newry 2020 Chair Brian Cleland, said "We wanted to host this event because we knew that people had a lot of questions about the Regeneration Programme that needed to be answered. We felt that an open public meeting with councillors, who are the final decision-makers in this process, would be the right forum for those questions.

"We had no idea how well it would work beforehand, but it turned out to be a huge success. We had over 110 people registered, and we heard from a wide range of passionate and well-informed speakers on the night. We're extremely grateful to the elected representatives for making themselves available to answer questions, and to our chair, Kevin McAllister, who did a brilliant job of keeping things on track.

"One of the things that came out of it was the obvious appetite for more civic events like this. People are extremely passionate about making our city better for everyone, and they've got some brilliant ideas about how we can do that. Lots of people have asked us when the next event will be and we want to keep the momentum going - so watch this space!"
