Speaking following plans being submitted this week for the demolition of the old St Marys youth club in Creggan local Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell said
“Its great news to see that a planing application has been submitted this week for the demolition of St Marys Youth club,making way for the rebuild.
“Over £2million is going to be invested in a completely new building. When built we will have a modern state of the art youth facility right in the heat of the community. The nature of youth work has changed dramatically in the last twenty years so it’s vital that we have the facilities to meet those challenges.
“It anticipated that work on clearing the site will begin later in the year with services there decamping to other buildings in Creggan whilst the new building is constructed.
“I would like to congratulate Stevie , all the staff and volunteers at the club for excellent work that they do and wish them well for the exciting times ahead.
