Heaney welcomes new Claudy facility

Sinn Féin Faughan representative Conor Heaney has welcomed plans for a new fresh fruit and vegetable processing and distribution facility in Claudy.

He was commenting after Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Planning Committee granted full planning permission for the proposal by local food firm Seasons Harvest.

Conor Heaney said: “I very much welcome this decision as good news for the Claudy area. Council is committed to supporting rural business through its Rural Partnership Programme so decisions like this help to bring investment and employment into a rural community like Claudy,”
