McCallion secures meeting over Bluebell Hill Gardens delay

Sinn Féin Foyle MP Elisha McCallion has secured a meeting with Housing Executives and residents to discuss continued delays to a major refurbishment scheme for Bluebell Hill Gardens in the Brandywell area of the city

The Foyle MP said

I was extremely dissapointed to learn that the scheme to improve homes in Bluebell Hill Gardens that are currentlty in an acceptable living standard will be delayed yet again until the New Year as far as March. This is unacceptable and I and my colleague Patricia Logue have demanded that senior officials from the Housing Executive come to the Brandywell and explain to you their failings in delivering this work.

The Housing Executive has said that there are more remedial works that must be carried out than first envisaged. I have questioned this as two full site surveys were carried out by the Housing Executive.

This simply isn’t good enough.

I have secured a meeting with senior officials from the Housing Executive and residents on Monday 11th December at 10am in the Gasyard Centre.

I would encourage all residents to attend.
