So­cial hous­ing funds sought

Irish Examiner - County - - News -

The Gov­ern­ment has been re­quested to fund six new so­cial houses at the Model Vil­lage, near Dripsey, fol­low­ing a sub­mis­sion from County Hall.

Of­fi­cials are anx­ious to build a two-storey ter­race of homes close to O’Ma­hony Ter­race.

Orig­i­nally the land for the new homes was ear­marked for ser­viced sites, but the coun­cil says there is a press­ing need for lo­cal author­ity hous­ing.

It plans to build three twobed and three three-bed homes there, which will each have front and back gar­dens.

They hope to get ap­proval for fund­ing from the De­part­ment shortly and com­mence con­struc­tion by the yearend or the be­gin­ning of 2019.

Cllr Gob­nait Moyni­han wel­comed the project but sug­gested the two-bed homes should be bun­ga­lows.

Of­fi­cials, how­ever, said the de­sign of the houses would be in keep­ing with ex ting homes.
