Planning approval for new Tourist office works

06 December 2019

Planning approval has been granted for the fit out of existing commercial, ground floor units to facilitate the relocation of the Visit Derry offices at Waterloo Place.

The decision was made this week by members of Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Planning Committee earlier this week, who, as part of the application, approved proposals to erect an entrance canopy, visitor information centre, toilets and staff facilities, at 1-3 Waterloo Place, Derry.

The proposals also include two projecting signs, two wall-mounted signs and an LED media screen on the ground floor.

Welcoming the decision, the Head of Planning Maura Fox with Derry City and Strabane District Council said it would allow for the expansion of tourist facilities in the city centre and provide an enhanced visitor experience.

Members of the committee also heard how the new location was deemed more accessible and convenient for visitors and would help deliver on the commitment by Council to bring life and investment into the city centre.
