He said “Following  a number of concerns being raised by residents about the overgrown trees in Lower Garden City I had an onsite meeting (today Thursday)with representatives from Derry City Council .I relayed the concerns  from residents and asked that a solution could be found to sort this out as speedily as possible.

Council has now agreed to put in place a programme of work to resolve the issues around the trees and they have said the work will be completed before the end of February 2015.

If any resident wishes to discuss this with me I can be contacted on  07743175709.
