Development plans for the regeneration of the Brandywell Stadium will be on show at the Brandywell Sports Centre next Thursday (July 24) from 2pm-9pm.

The information day will be open to all members of the public and will allow interested individuals to view the plans for the regeneration of the Stadium.

Also on display will be the draft proposals for the wider development of the Daisyfield area under the Foyle Valley Gateway Master Plan.

Development at the Stadium includes plans for a new stand, playing surface and car park as well as a number of other associated improvements to the existing infrastructure.

Derry Mayor Brenda Stevenson says: “The open day will give members of the public the first chance to view the regeneration proposals and the opportunity to discuss this development, providing a way of alleviating any concerns that may have arisen around the regeneration plans.”

“Prior to the submission of a full planning application, Derry City Council would like to provide members of the public with the relevant information on the proposals that are outlined and already approved by Council for the development of the Brandywell Stadium plus those that are proposed for the wider Daisyfield area under the ambitious Foyle Valley Gateway Master Plan.”

Derry City Council, which is hosting the event, says that, given the public interest in the regeneration scheme, representatives will be available throughout the day to answer any questions that members of the public may have.

Derry City Council’s Strategic Director Stephen Gillespie said: “I would encourage everyone to come and view the exciting plans that are in place for the area, an area whose significant potential for redevelopment has been identified and one which has the Council’s long term commitment to the wider Foyle Valley Gateway area.”
