Have your say on development of Melvin

MEMBERS of the public are being urges to take part in an online survey to have their say on the proposed redevelopment of the Melvin pitch.
The project proposes to enhance the arena pitch, running track, jumping and throwing areas at the complex.
Initial improvements are likely to include, provision of spectator welfare facilities, spectator entrance/s to include turnstile/s, provision of covered spectator seating, boundary fencing and dugouts, floodlighting to the athletics track.
Derry City and Strabnae District Council has appointed Otium Leisure Consultancy to carry out an Economic Appraisal for the proposed enhancement of the pitches.
As a follow-up to a public consultation event which took place recently at Melvin Sports Complex, two online surveys are being distributed via email, social media platforms and hard copies.
Information captured via the questionnaires will only be used to inform the need for, and intended use of the pitch.
Links to the two open invitation online surveys related to this project are available at
The link contains a questionnaire for clubs, schools, groups, organisations (one response per group) and a community survey to be completed by individual members of the public.
Hard copies of the community survey will be available for completion at Melvin Sports Complex, Riversdale Leisure Centre and Strabane Library.
The completion date for the survey is Monday, April 1.
