One week left to have your say on naming of the Melvin Pitch

31 August 2018

Members of the public hoping to have their say on the naming of the new pitch at Melvin in Strabane, should note that they have just one more week to officially register their views.

A public consultation led by Derry City and Strabane District Council has been ongoing for the past 12 weeks to gauge public opinion on naming the new facility in memory of the late Felix McCrossan, a leading local sports figure in the Strabane area, who passed away after a long illness in 2013.

The consultation, which has been widely advertised in the local press and on social media, will close at midnight on Sunday September 9th.

Members of the Health and Communities Committee at Derry City and Strabane District Council voted in favour of seeking the views of the public on the proposed name via the consultation process and the proposal was ratified at Full Council.

The results of the consultation will come before members of Council’s Health and Communities Committee in the autumn for consideration and will be available via the Council website at www.derrystrabane.com/

To register your view for or against the proposal go to https://haveyoursay.derrystrabane.com/mkt/melvin-consultation/
