SDLP Foyleside Councillor John Boyle has welcomed progress on a new extension at Pennyburn Youth Club.
Councillor Boyle said: “I am delighted to see that the Planning Service has approved plans which will progress towards the physical improvement of Pennyburn Youth Club. The management and directors must be commended for their foresight and hard work towards securing the future of what is a valuable facility for young people in the Pennyburn area and beyond.”
“Pennyburn Youth Club has been an integral part of the youth support system in our city for well over a generation and I well remember the facility from when I was a teenager. It is wonderful to see an enhancement of the facility by way of an overall refurbishment of the building and a much needed extension to the sports hall. These are exciting times for all those involved, not least the young people who use this excellent resource. “
