Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion welcomed confirmation that major outdoor events will continue at Ebrington alongside plans for residential developments.
The Foyle MP said: "I met today with Ebrington Holdings to discuss the ongoing progress on the development of the Ebrington site.
"Following the recent announcement of plans for residential developments on the site for over 55s, Ebrington Holding confirmed to me that this will in no way impact on the large outdoor events held throughout the year on the parade ground.
"All tenants of the site, both business and residential, will be fully in support of the outdoor events such as concerts continuing.
"We also discussed the progress of phase two of the Ebrington site, which is progressing ahead of schedule.
"Ebrington has on much potential and it is great seeing progress being made towards realising that with people working and living on the site.
"I will continue to work with Ebrington Holdings to ensure the opportunities of this site are realised for the people of the city."
