Sinn Féin Councillor Christopher Jackson has said plans for the Top of the Hill area will provide the biggest boost to the area in a generation.
Colr. Jackson was speaking after Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness met with community organisations, APEX , elected representatives and Father Michael Canny to discuss and look at plans for the former Immaculate Conception College site.
Councillor Jackson said: “These are very exciting plans for the Top of the Hill, the most important in a generation.
“Plans for the site include social housing, a community centre, a GAA pitch and the retention of the existing grass pitches. This will be a lasting legacy to a school site that has been key to the local community over the years.”
Colr. Jackson said Martin McGuinness has already had a big role to play in the delivery of the masterplan, with the recent announcement from the Office of the First and Deputy First Ministers of over £600,000 for a GAA pitch next to the school site.
