A planning statement – completed by Lee Kennedy Planning on behalf of JJM Developments Ltd., states the development will help meet growing social housing need in Eglinton.
The proposed development is on Killylane Road immediately southwest of the church.
“This application is lodged solely to accommodate the current social housing need for 67 new social housing homes in Eglinton as published in the Derry City & Strabane Housing Investment Plan Annual Update 2022 which cannot be accommodated within the settlement limits of Eglinton.
"This planning application is fully supported by the Housing Association – APEX – who have received confirmation from the Northern Ireland Housing Executive that there is an extreme need for social housing units in Eglinton at present.
"Historically, its well published that the social housing need for Eglinton cannot be provided on lands within the village resulting in the need going unmet year on year,” it states.
