SDLP Derry City Councillor Brian Tierney has welcomed a commitment to carry out area enhancement works in Glencaw and Fern Park.

The Team-works project at Shantallow Residents Association has agreed to carry out enhancement works after Colr. Tierney hosted a meeting on site to discuss the state of disrepair.

“A number of residents brought the issue to my attention over the last number of weeks. I contacted Shantallow Residents Association and the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, both of which I must commend for being very responsive to the needs of the community. I am delighted Team-work’s project is to carry out the much needed general tidy up, which will consist of painting fences and gable ends, scraping moss and power-hosing.”

Colr. Tierney added: “I would hope we will see workers on the ground within the next two weeks as this enhancement is long overdue. I think we will see a massive change in the area when the face lift is complete.”
