MacLochlainn to propose emergency motion on Project Kelvin at Derry City Council
Sinn Féin Cllr Gerry MacLochlainn will propose an emergency motion to Derry City Council Regional Services Committee today calling on the Project Kelvin 'Telehouse' to be located within the North West Gateway Councils area.
Gerry MacLochlainn is Chair of ERNACT (European Regions Network for the Application of Communications Technology) a cross border body working to improve telecoms and IT access in the North West. He will also be raising the issue with this body.
"Councillor MacLochlainn is hoping to receive cross party support for his motion."
Note to editor:
The 'Project Kelvin' motion is as follows:
"That Derry City Council notes with alarm the decision to base the Telehouse associated with Project Kelvin outside the North West Gateway despite a prior announcement that it was to be located within the council area.
"Derry City Council to meet with stakeholders as a matter of urgency to lobby for the location of the Telehouse within the Derry City Council area." CRÍOCH
