Logue to bring motion calling for action at flooding hotspots in Bogside, Brandywell and Creggan
Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue is to bring a motion before Council calling for renewed efforts to alleviate flooding.
Councillor Logue said: “We welcome efforts to develop flood alleviation proposals for Ballycolman, Eglinton and Drumahoe.
“But there are still several locations across our council area which are repeatedly flooded during times of bad weather.”
She is seeking action at hotspots in the Moor area.
Her motion refers to flooding at Foyle Road, Coshowen, Old City Court/Close, Lecky Road, Anne Street, Bluebell Hill Gardens, Glenowen and Creggan Country Park.
“My motion is calling on the Department for Infrastructure to work with the relevant agencies to find similar solutions to the issue of recurrent flooding at Foyle Road, areas of the Brandywell and at Glenowen and Creggan country park.
“It vital that this is done, residents should not have to live in fear of their homes being flooded with sandbags at the ready in their gardens or main arterial routes into our city regularly being under water.”
