Moves to address housing problems in the Triangle

Sinn Féin Waterside councillor Christopher Jackson has welcomed the news the Housing Executive is to carry out a report on the current state of homes in the in the Triangle.

The Triangle is a housing development which borders the Dungiven and Clondermott Road

Councillor Jackson said

 

“I have had various concerns raised from residents about the condition of the
properties in the Triangle.Some of these residents have to use brown
bags to dispose of their rubbish. Whilst other properties have
continuous problems with leaks due to the layout of the development.
 
I have had discussions with the housing executive regarding this and
have been told that consultants are currently being appointed to
conduct a survey of the buildings that are in place in the Triangle.
 
The housing executive have been very active in the area carrying out
essential repairs over recent months, but it is timely that a holistic
approach is taken to look at improving the housing stock in the area
so these problems don’t arise in the first place, this is long
overdue.
 
I eagerly await the results of the survey which I’m told will be
available in the new year.
