Clearly New Start

March 14, 2019

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council is pleased to welcome a £1 million investment and regeneration project at a key gateway site on Bridge Street, Lisburn. The award winning Clear Day Nurseries, is set to open a state of the art childcare facility at the former Wallace site creating 30 new jobs.

Alderman William Leathem, Chairman of the Council’s Development Committee, welcoming this investment, said: “The Council is delighted to see the former site at Bridge Street being converted into a childcare facility.  Our younger generation is important and working parents want their children to receive quality of care in an accessible location near to their workplace.  Clearly Kids is very experienced in childcare and I am confident the 100 places in its Bridge Street state of the art facility will be quickly filled.  We welcome this investment and job creation and wish Clearly Kids every success as they start their renovation project.”

Audrey McCracken Director of Clear Day Nurseries added “All six of our existing nurseries are rated in the top 20 in Northern Ireland and we are the only Northern Ireland nursery group in the UK top 20. We are delighted to be bringing our high quality of childcare to this new specialist facility in Lisburn. We look forward to welcoming parents and children to Clearly Kids Lisburn when we open in December this year.”

Once work commences the Clear Group will have full use and management of the parking spaces in the Union Bridge Car Park.  This will be subject to full council approval in March of the Council leasing its 16 spaces in this car park to the Clear Group. It is essential this car park is a safe and controlled area at all times to protect the children being dropped off and collected from childcare. There will continue to be pedestrian access to Lagan Valley Regional Park along this part of the River Lagan.
