Sinn Féin councillor Sean McGlinchey has submitted a motion to council asking the council to assist in driving forward the Dungiven bypass in any way it can.
Colr. McGlinchey said “I submitted this motion at last Tuesday’s full meeting and it will be voted on in January. This will be a chance for those who voted against the Dungiven leisure centre project to try and redeem themselves as best they can to the people of Dungiven.”
“The motion if passed ensures that the council will commit to doing what it can to ensure the delivery of the bypass, such as inviting the DRD minister to Dungiven and call on her to publish the findings of the 2012 public inquiry.”
Sinn Féin East Derry assembly candidate Cathal Ó hÓisín MLA added “I have already requested a meeting with the minister where I will stress to her the importance of this project to the health and wellbeing of everyone in Dungiven and surrounding areas. The community has waited far too long for this and have done everything they can to move this forward.”
