Hopes high that new community centre for the Galliagh area of Derry will be approved next week
29 Sept 2018
SDLP Councillor Brian Tierney has said he has high hopes for the Galliagh Community Centre whose application goes before the planning committee in Derry City & Strabane District Council on Wednesday. Cllr Tierney commented: “It has been a pleasure to work alongside the Galliagh steering group as we brought forward the plans and ideas from local people about the new Galliagh Community Centre. "The Galliagh community has never had the benefit of a community building within this area and I am excited to see the planning application before councils planning committee this month. “As it stands, a lot of the young people and community groups are meeting in local flats and porta cabins, in the absence of suitable premises. “If the planning committee sign off on planning permission, it will be a big boost for the local community. It will also mean that some of the current properties used by the community centre can be put back into circulation and used as suitable social housing for those in need."
