Riverine Community Park

Hello and welcome.

Derry City & Strabane District Council are in the process of developing plans for the eastern portion of the exciting new ‘Riverine Community Park’ in Strabane, along with their partners in Donegal County Council. This website gives you the opportunity to view the proposed plans for Riverine, and to leave comments or feedback on the draft design proposals.

What is Currently Proposed?

The proposal will see the development of a new community park incorporating the preservation of protected wetland areas to be used for educational and environmental purposes, planting, walking and cycling trails and a new footbridge across the River Foyle to the western side of the park currently being planned by Donegal County Council.

Your Feedback

Any comments made will be taken on board by the design team in determining the final layout that will be submitted to the Council in the form of a planning application.

The information contained on this website and the feedback forms provided are in lieu of normal public information events, which cannot be undertaken due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The website provides an alternative public consultation platform and we would encourage all those with an interest in the proposal to leave their feedback below.

What Happens Next?

This website will remain live until 11 June 2021 and any comments received up to that point in time will be considered by the design team. Once all of the feedback has been considered and any necessary changes made, the design team will proceed to submit a planning application. It is currently anticipated that the application will be made in Summer 2021, although this is subject to change.

It is important to note that any feedback provided on this website is a representation to the applicant, and not to the planning department in Derry City & Strabane District Council directly. If a planning application is subsequently submitted, normal neighbour notification and publicity will be undertaken and you will have the opportunity to make formal representations regarding the proposal at that time.

If you have any difficulty accessing the information on this website, any difficulty using the feedback form or require hard copies of the presentation, please contact Damien McLoughlin at Resolve Planning & Development.
