Derry City Council is to embark on a new phase of development works at the City Cemetery in the coming weeks.

The works, which are expected to commence during October, will exploit the remaining undeveloped area of the cemetery, to provide for a further 700 burial plots.

The proposed development works will consist of new access roads, retaining walls and improved car parking facilities.

A spokesperson for Derry City Council explained the development works are expected to be complete by the late summer of 2015.

Works are also commencing at Ballyoan Cemetery over the autumn period, to provide additional burial plots, new pathways, road widening and vehicle storage facilities for cemeteries staff.
