Your New Council Has Arrived
Today represents a landmark day for every single person living in our District when Newry & Mourne District Council and Down District Council merge to form the new Council known as Newry, Mourne & Down District Council. Your new Council will serve some 171,500 residents, making it the third largest Council in Northern Ireland.
We will continue to be responsible for providing you with the services that you currently receive such as Household Waste Collection, Registration, Leisure, Environmental Health, Building Control, Economic Development and Tourism. However, we will also be responsible for delivering a range of new services, as well as powers, including Planning and Community Planning.
You should experience very little change but please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any further information or clarification concerning how this change is being managed. Our message to you is that we are open for business as usual.
You can contact us on:
Telephone: 0300 013 2233 (Council) / 0300 200 7830 (Planning)
