The Department for Communities has announced Neighbourhood Renewal Investment funding of £781,836 towards a new community centre in the city.
It will go towards the capital costs of demolishing the old Rosemount Resource Centre and building a new modern community facility which will be located in the Rosemount area of Derry.
Hayleigh Fleming, Sinn Féin representative welcomed the news.
“This is welcome news for the Rosemount area. It comes at a time when we have also seen massive investment in Brooke Park and the Creggan Burn which has added greatly to the regeneration of the entire area.
“We also look forward to plans for a new community centre in the Glen becoming a reality."
