Foyle DUP MLA Gary Middleton has welcomed the significant plans for Crescent Link Retail Park which include the proposed expansion of the M&S Foodhall, the resizing and improvement of the Homebase store, the introduction of a new retailer, The Food Warehouse by Iceland, and the improvement of the car park to enhance accessibility and alleviate congestion for local residents.
Mr Middleton said “This is a significant investment for the Waterside and wider Londonderry area. In the current challenging environment, the creation of an additional 110 jobs is very welcome news. This investment will provide an economic boost to the North West. The new stores will increase consumer choice in the area.
As many of the customers of Crescent Link will know, there have been parking and traffic issues on the site over recent years. I believe the creation of a new exit and increased parking spaces will go some way to address these concerns.”
