Plans announced which could see 400 new homes in Galliagh and Carnhill

Plans were today announced which could see 400 new homes, as well as new play areas and community facilities, in the Galliagh and Carnhill areas of Derry city.

The regeneration plans are being aimed at these areas as they are seen as somewhere with a need for social housing.

But, Sinn Fein Councillor for the Shantallow area, Tony Hassan, says residents have raised concerns with him about the green areas in Carnhill and Galliagh being destroyed.
