Work Underway On Castlederg Regeneration Scheme

Construction News Image
Lowry Building and Civil Engineering is making significant progress on a regeneration project in Castlederg.

Today, 24 May, plans have been unveiled at what the Diamond will look like once the works are completed.

The project is just one element of the wider Derg Active scheme, an integrated economic, health and wellbeing initiative incorporating improvements to infrastructure at a number of key sites in the town to promote and encourage more active lifestyles.

The £6.5 million project is funded though the UK Government’s Levelling Up Fund and Council, with £5,823,090 secured by Council as part of a wider Levelling Up package, to create a high-quality public realm space at the Diamond in the centre of the town, new play provision and lighting at the Castle and enhanced greenway connectivity at Dergview FC.

The Diamond will see the creation of a spacious outdoor shared area, that will considerably enhance the visual appeal of the town. The space will be ideal for hosting small outdoor events, markets and community engagements, and become an attractive focal point for shoppers and visitors to the Castlederg area.

Mayor of Derry and Strabane, Councillor Patricia Logue, said: "It was a real privilege to turn the sod at the Diamond back in February and so exciting to be able to be able to now see the creative vision for the area. Work is well underway, and we appreciate everyone’s patience while it's completed, it really will be worth it to see this part of the town transformed for the better. It's all part of a wider regeneration of the area, which will have significant benefits in terms of health and wellbeing."
