Sinn Féin Shantallow Councillor, Elisha McCallion has welcomed confirmation from Derry City & Strabane District Council of the allocation of £120,000 to carry out essential works at Templemore Sports Complex.
Elisha McCallion said:
“I have been lobbying Council for a number of years now to have an extensive redevelopment and upgrading of the Templemore Sports Complex.
“A number of months ago I again requested that Council make available sufficient funding to carry out necessary short-term works in anticipation of the major permanent redevelopment of the entire complex.
“I am delighted to confirm that DCSDC has now allocated £120,000 to carry out the more immediate works that are required.
“Over the next few years I believe that we will see one of the most extensive developments at the Complex that has been witnessed in this City.
“In the meantime I welcome DCSDC’s decision to carry out a much required makeover of these very popular facilities.”
