Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Councillor John Boyle, has signed off on a legal Planning Agreement that will pave the way for up to the construction of up to 2,850 private and social housing homes on land west of the Buncrana Road between Whitehouse Road and Benview Estate, Coshquin in Derry.

In December 2017 members of Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Planning Committee approved outline planning permission for the development that includes a mix of housing, local community facilities, open space, cycle / pedestrian routes and vehicular access, a primary school, drainage and other infrastructure.
