10,000 new homes earmarked for Derry
Ten thousand new homes have been earmarked for Londonderry, the Environment Minister Alex Attwood has revealed.
The Minister stated that Londonderry currently has a generous supply of development land when asked by Foyle MLA Pat Ramsey for details of the new Area Plan for Derry City Council.
Responding to Mr Ramsey’s query about when the plan would be completed, Mr Attwood said that until a new plan was prepared “the existing plan continues to be a material consideration past its stated end-by date”.
Mr Attwood said: “At present Derry has a generous supply of development land, with existing permissions and housing zonings providing potential for 9,973 dwellings in Derry City and 1,750 dwellings in the District’s remaining settlements.”
