Sinn Féin Councillor Tony Hassan has called on Culmore residents and other interested parties to ensure that their views on the future development of the Culmore Country Park (the old landfill site) are heard in the upcoming public consultation.
Councillor Hassan said:
“Next month we are moving to the consultation stage with views on what facilities residents, sporting groups, schools and all other interested parties feel the Culmore Country park area requires.
“I would appeal to the greatest number of residents in particular to ensure that they have an input into what eventually emerges.
“We have been lobbying for proper community facilities for a long number of years and it is important everyone’s views are taken on board so that we can ensure that any facilities meet the requirement of the residents in Culmore.
“I believe that these should incorporate, sports pitches, children’s play park, walkways or cycle track, bird hides and natural habitat. But this may not be an exhaustive list which why it is imperative that every resident and interested party contributes to the vision of the development of Culmore.”
