Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley has welcomed the commitment from the Housing Executive to provide an ongoing laneway cleaning programme for Ballymagroarty.
Cllr. McGinley said: “In recent weeks the Housing Executive has identified a responsibility for ensuring that the laneways in the upper area of Ballymagroarty are regularly maintained and cleaned. This is a welcome development and is part of a programme which will see the H.E. attempt to identify further areas of responsibility within the estate.
In conjunction with this positive news I have been working with the Council to ensure the front facing streets and footpaths in the whole estate are given proper attention and I would also welcome the improvements which have taken place recently.
The residents of Ballymagroarty are entitled to live in a clean environment and this initiative from the Housing Executive is particularly welcome.”
