Mullan welcomes movement on H2 site

Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has welcomed progress towards the development of the H2 lands at Buncrana Road which could lead to the building of 3,500 homes. 

The Foyle MLA said:

“This site has rightly been identified as key to addressing the housing need in our city, having the potential to provide up to 3,500 much needed homes. 

“This long-awaited application is the first phase of development on these lands and consists of 800 dwellings consisting of a mix of social, affordable and private housing including townhouses, apartments, semi- detached and detached houses. 

“It will also consist of a mix of convenience retail stores, cafés, retail units, office units, live/work units, gym, community centre as well as children’s play areas. And see the provision of a new road network to connect to re-aligned Coshquin and Whitehouse road, new pedestrian and cycle ways.”
