Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley has described the work of the Outer West Partnership Board as “helping to transform the physical landscape of the area.”
Colr. McGinley praised the board and said they help to develop relationships within community.
“Over the past few years the Outer West Partnership Board has identified, prioritised and assisted with a number of significant capital projects which will bring services and facilities to residents in areas such as Ballymagroarty, the Glen, Hazelbank and Rosemount.
“We have projects nearing completion at the Dunluce Family Centre and Doire Colmcille, projects now underway at Brooke Park and Creggan Burn and projects in a state of readiness at the Ballymagroarty and Glenview Community Centres.
“All of these projects will transform the physical landscape of our areas over the course of the next short period and have developed as a result of close working relationships fostered by the Outer West Partnership.”
Colr. McGinley added: “These relationships have involved many government departments such as OFMDFM, DSD, DCAL, and DRD as well as other statutory agencies across the education, health and housing sectors.
“Derry City Council has also played a key role in assisting and supporting many of the initiatives and I would take this opportunity to commend the Partnership Board for its efforts in bringing significant investment and development to the Outer West area,” said Colr. McGinley.
