One of Northern Ireland's leading house builders, Braidwater, has taken over an abandoned site in Drumahoe outside Londonderry, which was left in disrepair after the property crash.

The transformation of the Ashbrook Court site, formerly named Copperthorpe, will see the development of 35 new, contemporary family homes in the area as well as the completion of unfinished homes and infrastructure.

Braidwater has also made a commitment to put road bonds in place, ensure drainage works are rectified and provide landscaping for the new homes.

The project is part of a wider development plan for the Drumahoe area that will consist of more than 500 new homes and will link to the Ashbrook Court development, bringing a new lease of life to the local area.

Braidwater worked closely with statutory authorities and stakeholders including Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council Alderman Hilary McClintock, to redevelop the estate.

Braidwater MD Joe McGinnis, said: “We took over the now renamed Ashbrook Court site in 2016 and sought to complete and improve upon the development so that it is a desirable place for everyone to live in. This includes the current residents who were left with many unresolved issues and who we would like to thank for their patience and continued support. “

Ald McClintock said: “This is fantastic news for Drumahoe and a good example of positive collaboration and engagement between the relevant stakeholders to bring this development forward.”
