The Council is currently investigating the causes of the flooding from Whinny Hill Park, which is affecting houses in Hope Street, and it is hoped that work to address it will be instructed as soon as the outcome is known. The Council is also trying to establish the cause of the water flow down Hope Street. They believe it is coming from railway land and are contacting Network about it. It might well be that there is a connection between the 2 water problems and Cllr. McGarry has asked if this could be investigated.
