The Department for Communities and Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council committed £100,000 towards an environmental improvement scheme in Castle Lane, Lurgan.
The scheme comprises a ‘strip’ on the western side of Castle Lane, with soft landscaping consisting of planted beds and trees in planters at intervals along the street frontage. The footpath has effectively been widened to enable the introduction of soft landscaping to define the street edge, and to promote a safe and attractive environment for pedestrians.
In relation to the eastern side of Castle Lane (along the car park), trees in planters have been placed at intervals to soften the edge of the car park and create the impression of a tree-lined street leading to the historic Brownlow House and Lurgan Park.
This scheme is intended to enhance the streetscape of Castle Lane, while also improving public safety and reducing antisocial behaviour.
