Survey work to commence at Boom Hall site next week
15 November 2018
Large scale access plant, that will assist in carrying out a detailed condition survey of Boom Hall Stables, Boom Hall House and adjoining walled garden, is expected to arrive on site next week.
The work will commence following the recent appointment by Derry City and Strabane District Council of a conservation architect led multidisciplinary consultant team to carry out a detailed condition survey of the structure and building fabric of Boom Hall Stables and Boom Hall House.
This survey work will form a key component of the conservation management plan that the appointed consultant team are compiling on these properties and their surrounds on behalf of Council. Access to the site and the adjacent greenway will be restricted while this work is being carried out and the public are urged to adhere to any safety signage on display on site. It is anticipated that the survey work may take up to two weeks to complete.
A spokesperson for the Council said this work is a key initial step towards its overall objective to identify the wider potential development options for Boom Hall site and its historic buildings and structures. The spokesperson said: “Council remains committed to the regeneration of the Boom Hall Estate as a key heritage and recreational asset for citizens and visitors. Council recognises the significant recreation, tourism, heritage and leisure potential of the Boom Hall Estate, and is keen to ensure that the site and its surroundings are optimised for these purposes for the benefit of citizens and visitors.
