McGinley welcomes green light for 3,500 social and private homes on the H2 site

Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley has welcomed reaffirmation for the proposed development of 3,500 social and private homes on the H2 site along the Buncrana Road area of the city. 

Cllr McGinley said: “After many years of campaigning to have this site developed we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with outline planning approval being confirmed by Council’s Planning Committee.

“This development will assist the regeneration of the Buncrana Road area and will provide a significant number of much needed construction jobs.

“The housing crisis within the city has been well documented and the construction of thousands of houses will be a godsend for the many families currently sitting on the housing waiting lists and with little prospect of being offered new accommodation in the near future.”
