Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley has welcomed the inclusion on Council’s Capital Projects list of a new build community centre for Hazelbank / Ballymagroarty.
Cllr. McGinley said: “Council’s review of community centre provision highlighted clearly the need for a new build facility which would add to the current provision of services in the Hazelbank / Ballymagroarty area.
In line with this conclusion I proposed at the recent Capital Projects Working Group that this development be placed on the list of priorities along with other proposals for new community centres across the council area.
The inclusion of the proposal will allow council officers to work with all the stakeholders – – including BHCP and the local community – in developing designs and seeking potential funders to allow the project to proceed within a reasonable time frame.
I will continue to press for the delivery of this much needed project which will greatly benefit the residents of Hazelbank and Ballymagroarty.”
