Sinn Féin Group Leader on Derry and Strabane District Council, Paul Fleming, has called on Council to ensure the swift publication of a health impact study exploring the effect of heavy industry on Strathfoyle and Culmore residents. Publication has been delayed while council engages with a concerned stakeholder and Cllr. Fleming insisted this should be completed as quickly as possible.
“While I appreciate the need for all concerns to be taken on board and addressed as comprehensively as possible I do not believe that it is in the public interest to prolong the process unnecessarily.
“I have been contacted by concerned constituents who fear the report is being suppressed.
“I am therefore calling on Council Officials to complete their correspondence with the utmost urgency with the stakeholder who has made representation so that the Report can be made public without any further delay.”
