Sinn Féin Foyle Assembly candidate Raymond McCartney has welcomed the news that the Department of Finance has today approved the business case for the new Niche Drinks distillery at Ebrington creating at least 35 jobs.
Mr McCartney said, “As well as last nights Derry City and Strabane District Councils’ granting of the planning permission for this excellent development, the news that the Department of Finance has now also approved the business case, means that this development has the green light to begin construction. This is excellent news and a further sign that the development of the Ebrington site is accelerating.”
Raymond McCartney continued, ” I am aware of a number of other exciting projects for this site that will be coming to fruition in the coming months, including a new hotel development and a major new build for new Grade A office accommodation. We are now finally starting to see the Ebrington site developing to its full potential”
