Next step in Ballykelly development welcomed
Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Ó hOisín has welcomed the next stage in the development of the former military site at Ballykelly.
Mr Ó hOisín said,
“The announcement by the Department of OFM/dFM that they are inviting potential buyers for sections of the former military site at Ballykelly is the next welcome step in developing this massive site for the local community and economic revival of the region.
“It is clear from the statement that OFM/dFM have a strategy that will help unlock the massive potential this site holds.
“We have already seen the beginning of the construction phase of the new DARD headquarters that is to be situated on one part of the site so developing the rest of the site will add further value to the economic regeneration of the area.
“I will continue to work with all the relevant departments and agencies to ensure the maximum return to the local community in developing the site through categories of business, governmental, leisure and environmental projects for the benefit of the entire community.”
