Planners approve new homes for Drumahoe

Detailed plans for a major new housing development comprising over 350 dwellings for the Drumahoe area have been given the go ahead by members of Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Planning Committee.

The proposed residential development of 362 new homes, featuring a mix of 61 detached, 248 semi-detached, 32 quad bungalows and 21 apartments was unanimously granted full permission after the reserved matters planning application was brought by developers Braidwater Ltd. Within the application the developer stipulates that the proposed house types are of a traditional design yet modern and attractive. The neighbourhood development will also feature public open space including an equipped children’s play area and all associated landscaping.
