LIMAVADY Councillor Brenda Chivers has welcomed the news that £742,000 is to be invested in improving Limavady town centre.
Communities Minister Paul Givan recently announced that investment will deliver public realm upgrades along Connell Street and Irish Green Street and a revitalisation scheme for Market Street.
The Department for Communities is providing £721,000 with a further £21,300 being provided by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
Cllr Chivers said: "I welcome this announcement of further investment from the minister. This funding will help improve the appearance of the town centre including Connell Street and Market Street which will be great news to struggling businesses in Limavady.
"This is yet another example of Sinn Féin and the Executive delivering for Limavady and outlying areas in recent years such as plans for a shared education campus, a new building at Rossmar school and a leisure centre for Dungiven."
Minister Givan said: "This funding will promote and further improve the appearance of the shop fronts and the public realm of this beautiful market town and complements my Department's earlier investments.
“This will help to support and expand the existing independent and niche retail provision in the town.
“We will continue to work in partnership with the Council and other key stakeholders to identify and deliver initiatives that will contribute to the regeneration of Limavady."
The Department for Communities is investing £371,000 for public realm improvements along Connell Street and Irish Green Street. These will include an upgrade of the footway surfaces, kerbs, street lighting and to resurface areas of the carriageway.
