Review of the Strategic Growth Plan (2022)
The Inclusive Strategic Growth Plan 2017-2032 – or Community Plan – for Derry and Strabane provides the framework for all community and strategic development until 2032, and was first published in November 2017 after an extensive co-design process.
In line with the regulations set out for all local Councils by the Department for Communities to ensure transparency and accountability, the plan is subject to review every four years. This draft review has now been completed and we are pleased to report that progress has already been identified across a significant number of the outcomes.
If this trend continues, by 2032 it’s expected that the required investment of £3.4bn in the SGP will deliver 15,100 new jobs, 10,000 additional people, £203m additional wages and £1.1bn additional GVA for Derry and Strabane.
We would love to hear your views on this work to date, and a nine-week public consultation on the content of the Draft Plan is now open, running until Friday, 15th April.

Your feedback matters and will help set the direction for the next stage of this process, and help shape a brighter, better future for everyone living in our City and District.
