Sinn Féin Councillor for the Waterside Christopher Jackson has welcomed the decision to approve an outline planning application for the Top of the Hill masterplan. The masterplan consists of a new community centre, a MUGA, soccer pitches and play facilities, as well as a purpose built GAA pitch for Na Piarsaigh Doire Trasna GAC.
Councillor Jackson said
“The area is crying out for facilities and this development will service the needs of the many community and voluntary organisations in and around the TOTH who have been hampered by the lack of facilities in this part of the Waterside.
Top of the Hill hasn’t seen any significant investment for generations. I would like to commend all those groups in the area who have work very hard to formulate these proposals.
Seeing these plans being approved by the council has brought us that bit closer to making this project a reality. I have spoken to many people in the community this week and there is a real sense of excitement on hearing news of these ambitious plans.
