We were delighted to have Social Development Minister, Mervyn Storey MLA Storey visit our new housing scheme at Laurelvale, Crumlin.
Consisting of 3 and 4 bedroom houses, 12 of the 14 properties have been handed over to tenants. The properties have been acquired by Habinteg with support from the Department for Social Development.
Minister Storey said: “I am delighted to welcome the new tenants into these high quality homes. This latest development is a tremendous and much needed addition to the village.
“New modern housing like this is vital to the survival of rural communities. As communities living in small towns and villages continue to grow there is an increased demand for more homes to ensure a more sustainable way of life. My Department, working in partnership with the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, is pleased to have been able to support and help fund this latest development.”
During a tour of the Crumlin development, the Minister met with a new resident and was shown around one of the new homes.
David Duly, Chief Executive of Habinteg Housing Association said: “We are delighted to have acquired, with the support of the Department for Social Development, these properties in Crumlin. The first of three Habinteg schemes in the area, Laurelvale Close represents a major contribution to the provision of good quality housing for families in an area of considerable housing need.”
