Electrical courses could see spike in demand if Drumahoe development goes ahead

Electrical courses could see increased enrolment from would-be electricians if plans are approved for a Drumahoe development, with work expected to start in late 2011.

A £50 million proposal is being considered which could bring 300 jobs to the north-west of Northern Ireland and see demand for electrical courses surge, reports the BBC.

The development plans for Drumahoe would see a new entertainment complex including restaurants, shops, an ice rink, bowling alley and an indoor football dome housing eight pitches built on the Desmonds factory site.

If the application is approved, the new development would be a boost to the community which saw 300 jobs lost when the Desmond factory closed in 2004.

Speaking to the BBC, Andrew Russell, chairman of the Drumahoe Community Association, which aims to relieve poverty and sickness in the region, said: "An opportunity like this is may be too good an opportunity for the village to miss."
