Sinn Féin’s Sandra Duffy has welcomed the conclusion of a business case that could see Shantallow get a new community centre.
“This is good news for the people of Shantallow and surrounding area that this level of investment is being sought for a new community centre.
“The community centre has firmly established itself as a focal point for local people of all ages,” she said.
It is understood the £1million application will now be sent to Department of Social Development on behalf of Derry City Council.
Ms Duffy said she was hopeful the funding could be secured swiftly and the project completed as soon as possible.
