Planners poised for decision on Derry stores

The planning service has said it will decide shortly if several major retail developments in Londonderry should go ahead.

Officials are dealing with 10 applications, including four in the Cityside and six in the Waterside.

John Cummins, from the Department of Environment, said the number of applications is unusual.

"Tesco have three applications with us," he said. "Two are at appeal hearing on the Buncrana Road."
