Eight new social houses to be built at Cherryorchard
Eight new council houses will be built in Enniscorthy in the coming months.
Contracts were signed last week for the new housing development at Cherryorchard.
The houses which are being built by Kilgarvan Developments in Wellington- bridge will be located at the corner of the Ross Road/Gort na Greine roundabout, Enniscorthy.
The project will involve the construction of the eight houses and associated site works. The houses comprise four semi detached two storey thee bed hous- es and four semi detached bungalows, two of which are three bed while two are two bed homes.
The bungalows are designed for people with special needs and have been designed with occupational therapist’s recommendations. Tenants for the four bungalows have already been identified while the four two storey homes will be allocated to people on the council’s housing list.
The high spec homes will have an energy rating of A3 and are expected to be completed by next summer.
