Gas heating is to be installed at homes in Ballysally.
The installation work will commence in June 2019 and will see 190 homes making the switch over to gas under the first phase.
DUP MLA Maurice Bradley has welcomed the news: “This will make a great difference to the residents of Ballysally,” he said.
“At present there are homes in the area that are still under economy 7 heating – these heating systems are well passed their sell buy dates and are costing families a lot of money in electric, so this change over will be of a huge benefit to residents.”
Bradley went on: “I understand that there will be four phases to the gas installation with the final phase being completed by Autumn 2022.”
