Communities Minister Pau Givan said: "The completion of this public realm scheme has transformed Cookstown town centre, creating an attractive environment that will greatly benefit all those who live, work and shop in this key market town. The result is a beautiful and very functional scheme of which we can all be proud."

"I fully recognise the crucial role town centres play in providing a sense of local civic pride and community. This scheme is one of several major public realm projects my Department has supported recently in the Mid Ulster District Council area. Including Dungannon and Magherafelt, a total of £10.2million has been invested locally to enhance these important towns."
