SINN Féin’s Elisha McCallion has said she is hopeful that contractors will begin to build Grade A office space on the Ebrington site in Derry by October.
The Foyle MP said: “The building of Grade A office space would help attract new businesses to Derry and help realise the potential of the Ebrington site.
“The Department of Infrastructure have recommended the application for approval and I am hopeful that it will receive full planning approval in the next few weeks.
“If it is approved, contractors could be on site by October to begin building work.
“This would be a major step forward in helping to attract new jobs to the site, creating employment and providing a welcome boost to the local economy.”
