East Antrim MLA Oliver McMullan has called for InfraStrata to meet with local residents to discuss their concerns over proposed drilling at Woodburn Forest.
“There are serious concerns in the Carrickfergus and wider East Antrim area about the controversial exploratory drilling which began in Woodburn forest recently,” the Sinn Fein Assemblyman said.
“People area worried about the potential impact of the drilling and how it could affect the local environment, particularly water quality in the area.
“Other also have fears about the impact this operation is having on the forest at Woodburn.
“I am calling on the company behind the drilling, InfraStrata, to meet with local residents and campaigners.”
