Hillsborough residents and business owners met recently with representatives of Phoenix Natural Gas at their Hillsborough Public Information Event to learn more about the planned works schedule to extend the natural gas pipeline into the town and bring the benefits of natural gas to over 1,700 properties.
The Hillsborough Public Information Event took place from Tuesday 24th – Thursday 26th January at the Hillsborough Visitors Centre and provided an opportunity for locals to meet with representatives from Phoenix Natural Gas and view the planned works maps.
Geri Wright, Communications Manager at Phoenix Natural Gas said, “Phoenix Natural Gas is committed to working with the local community to develop an efficient and practical programme of works that will minimise disruption to the area.
“This event aimed to inform the community about upcoming works and provide a forum for locals to voice their concerns or ask questions. We were delighted to welcome over 150 visitors over the three days and meet the community individually to discuss the programme.
“We were pleased with the positive response we received and it is encouraging to see the enthusiasm for natural gas in the area. Phoenix Natural Gas is now working to bring this fuel choice to home owners in Hillsborough and customers will soon be able to enjoy the benefits natural gas can bring such as high efficiency central heating boilers, instant heat, constant supply and the creation of additional space, inside and out.”
Local resident and Hillsborough Steering Group representative, Robert Lucas, said; “This is a highly anticipated project for the people of Hillsborough and, having met with Phoenix Natural Gas on several occasions through the Hillsborough Steering Group and the Public Information Event, I am satisfied that the project has been well considered.”
“Whilst an element of disruption is inevitable with an infrastructure project of this size, I am confident that the plan presented represents an efficient and safe works programme that considers the historic nature of our town and the requirements of our community.”
“Phoenix Natural Gas is continuing to engage with local community groups, business owners and local schools to minimise disruption and I look forward to continuing this relationship as works get underway to bring this important new utility to the area.”
Phoenix Natural Gas works are scheduled to commence on Main Street, Hillsborough from 6th March 2017 for a period of approximately eight weeks. Traffic diversions will operate in the area throughout the duration and residents and business owners will be notified directly in advance.
