Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue has welcomed the news at building work is set to start within weeks on a new play park in the Brandywell after Derry City and Strabane District Council confirmed the appointment of contractors.
Councillor Logue said “I am very pleased that the council has confirmed the appointment of contractors to build a new state of the art play park in the Showground’s. This is another piece of the overall jigsaw in plans for the area.
“I have campaigned for many years to see the Brandywell, Showgrounds and Daisyfield developed and it is great news to see this coming to fruition.
The need for a play park in the locality has been a key issue for the residents and Sinn Féin for a considerable period of time.
It’s important now that this moves to the next stage and the commencement and completion of this project takes place as quickly as possible.
