Save Steeple Parkland from housing development

This petition made change with 800 supporters!

With the recent announcement by South Antrim MP Rev W. McCrea, in relation to the development of an integrated sports facility at Antrim Grammar & Parkhall Integrated College, we the undersigned agree that the old council yard would be best used in relation to this suggested scheme. We further state, that we categorically believe that the proposed housing development, which planning has been passed, would be unsuitable & unacceptable for an area containing such an important historic monument as the Round Tower. We further wish to place on record that Steeple Parkland should be significantly improved by way of walkways (inc disabled access) lighting, seating & better designed landscaping. We believe that attempts should be made to list the Gatehouse for future protection. Any improvement to sports facilities should include Antrim Rovers as they are a vital source for youth football in Antrim. A ‘Friends Of Steeple Park’ grouping should also be considered as well as interesting ideas for reusing the stone built outbuildings.

Thank you,

The People Of Steeple, Antrim & afar.
