Said Cllr Reilly: “People living in Currynierin need and deserve quality play park facilities in the community and there is no doubt that the families in the local area have been waiting far too long for an upgrade of existing facilities.
“I am aware that the area had been included in an application to the UK government’s most recent Levelling Up fund, but unfortunately was unsuccessful.
“However, I would like to warmly welcome the commitment at Council yesterday that this application will form part of Council’s application to the PeacePlus programme.
“A successful application would mean that the young people of the Waterside could enjoy play facilities provided by the European Union well into the future.”
Added SDLP Councillor Sean Mooney: “The Glendermott Valley Shared Green Infrastructure Project is an exciting opportunity to transform the Tullyally, Drumahoe forest and Currynierin areas.
“This part of the Waterside needs to see adequate investment.
“Delivering play provision and improved parkland is an important step to bring wide benefits to those that live there.”Tags:
