Sinn Féin Housing spokesperson Councillor Tony Hassan has welcomed the news from Apex and Fold Housing Associations that they are building over 300 new social homes in the Skeoge lands for allocation next year.
“This is a good news story for social housing provision in Derry and for the hundreds of people on the homeless waiting list.
Cllr, Hassan said
“The number of people waiting for a home in the city has increased dramatically over the past few years .These new homes will go some way to alleviating that problem.
I will continue to lobby at every opportunity to ensure that the need for new social housing schemes is kept firmly on the agenda.
I would also appeal to residents in different areas of the city where social homes developments are taking place to work with the Housing Associations to ensure that there is a positive outcome for everyone involved.
