Sinn Féin Councillor Tony Hassan has encouraged residents in Culmore to take part in a Health Impact Assessment currently underway and to raise any concerns they have about the area.
Colr. Hassan said the survey was a good way for residents to voice any concerns they have about their health.
“I welcome the news that Derry City Council has appointed consultants to undertake a Health Impact Assessment to determine the potential health impacts of existing and proposed industrial activities on local communities in the Culmore, Strathfoyle and Maydown areas.
“As an elected representative for the Culmore area I get calls on a regular basis from residents worried about a number of issues affecting them and in particular, their health.”
He added: “It’s important that we take those concerns on board and try to address them. This consultation offers residents an opportunity to have their say and I would encourage as many people as possible from Culmore to take part in the process.”
