The North West is the most economically deprived area of the North. For too long Derry and Strabane have been treated like the poor relation.
While the British Government has agreed to a City Deal for Derry City and Strabane District Council area to help deliver strategic growth to the North West - we want more than a commitment – we want action.
A City Deal will help build on the work to make the North West a strategic growth region on the island of Ireland. Channelling investment into the border region and boosting the entire economy of the North West.
- City Deals can create jobs and drive our local economy.
- A City Deal for Derry and Strabane can end years of economic inequality in the North West.
- A City Deal will deliver growth - giving our children an opportunity to learn, earn and thrive in the area that they were born.
We, the undersigned, support the immediate delivery of a City Deal for Derry and Strabane. We call on the Secretary of State to work with relevant departments, Derry City and Strabane District Council and elected representatives to deliver a financial package to address regional disparity and drive the local economy in the North West.
A City Deal for Derry and Strabane should be used initially, but not be limited to, delivering long awaited projects to create jobs, increase investment in third level education including the expansion of Magee, increase investment for apprenticeships and enhance infrastructure for the North West.
We stand ready and willing to work with all partners to deliver our fair share and secure a fairer future for all of us in the North West.
