Public feedback submission deadline extended for Derry-Buncrana greenway

30 July 2018

Following on from two public consultation events held in Fahan and Derry in June, when almost 300 people attended, the submission deadline for feedback on route 1, Buncrana to Derry, has been extended to Friday 31 August 2018.

The Buncrana to Derry section is one of three routes being developed as part of the North West Greenway Network, along with Derry-Muff & Lifford-Strabane. On completion, the three routes will comprise 46.5 km of new cross-border greenway that will help reduce carbon emissions by encouraging commuters to leave their cars at home. The c.€18 million project is part-funded under the EU’s INTERREG VA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).

Jonathan Henderson, Programme Manager for the North West Greenway Network said: “We’ve extended the deadline due to the summer holiday period. The turnout at the public consultations was fantastic and it is great to see the desire and enthusiasm that people have for greenway development.

He continued: “Whilst there is significant support for the greenway project, we will strive to ensure that, no matter the preferred route selected, impact on those living in proximity to developed infrastructure will be minimised where possible.”

The feedback form for route 1 can be downloaded at www.nwgreenway.com.
