Sinn Féin Councillor Colly Kelly speaking following having an on-site meeting with The Apex Housing manager for Oakland Park in Creggan regarding a few issues which residents had been raising.
Councillor Kelly said “Residents raised a number of concerns with me.
The gathering point and at times anti social element within the green space there.
The attempted break- ins over Christmas and the New Year period.
And a general clean up needed where the moss has been gathering on footpaths and surrounding area.
This was a very productive meeting with a cleaning job submitted for the street and they will also be looking at possibilities moving forward regarding the green space.
We will be delivering a letter to residents offering a free home safety check through the Council which looks at the security of your home to thwart attempted break ins.
