Councillor Tony Hassan said

“I welcome the development of these new homes at Skeoge and at Birch Hill on the Belt Road in the Waterside area of the city.

This £60million investment will create hundreds of much needed construction jobs over the next three to four years and support local firms in the supply business.

It sends out the message that the housing market is picking up again in the city and will allow first time buyers a chance to get on to the housing ladder.I will also continue to lobby at every opportunity to ensure that the need for new social housing schemes in Derry is kept firmly on the agenda.”
