“the potential for significant delay..”

As the BBC briefly note, the NI Executive’s Social Development minister has announced that the Carvill Group have withdrawn from the proposed redevelopment of the site of the former Andersonstown police station, citing “the potential for significant delay in getting their proposals agreed and through the planning system”. It comes after a series of organised protests at the site and, as Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams, MP, MLA, mentions, the threat of legal action against the proposals. As to his party’s proposed “gift-aiding” of the site to the local community.. I suspect the Finance minister might have something to say about disposing of public assets in that manner..
