Online survey launched on attitudes to Riverine project in Lifford and Strabane


People living in the Strabane and Lifford areas are being encouraged to have their say on a major cross border development planned for the region, by taking part in an online survey.

Derry City and Strabane District Council in partnership with Donegal County Council are hoping to drive forward plans on the 'Riverine Project', which seeks to create a significant new cross border community asset for the area.

The proposed Riverine concept plans comprise 47 acres covering two currently unused open natural spaces, including a partially covered outdoor public events space, community building and a world class play experience, radiating out into shared parkland featuring walkways, river access and parking.

If taken to the next stage Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Alderman Hilary McClintock says the area will also benefit from greatly enhanced infrastructure with a new cross-border greenway network connecting Lifford and Strabane as well as a cross border pedestrian bridge linking the towns.

This stage I application has recently been successful, with the project now going through to a more detailed second stage assessment with a public survey said to be an essential part of that phase.

The people of Strabane, Lifford and the surrounding areas and the public have been asked to show their support by completing the survey.
