North & East Housing Association welcome 18 new homes in Co. Meath
North & East Housing Association (North & East) welcomed the provision of 18 new homes at Ardmore Rise in Bettystown, Co. Meath which it has leased from NAMA for use as Social Housing, bringing to 29 the total number of homes in management in the scheme. The Minister of State for Housing and Urban Renewal, Damien English TD visited the development together with senior figures from NAMA and Eugene Cassidy, Leas-Cathaoirleach of Meath County Council.
Speaking at the event, the Chairman of North & East Pat Lennon said that the organisation was delighted to work with NAMA on this project; “We have a very positive and constructive relationship with NAMA and Meath County Council. We lease units on long term leases (20 years plus) from NAMA and we then provide them to suitable families from local authority housing lists for use as social housing.”
The Minister of State for Housing and Urban Renewal, Damien English TD said “I was delighted to be invited to Ardmore in Bettystown to come on-site and walk around this wonderful development. At a time when social housing is at a critical point, the completion of the 29 apartments, duplexes and houses for social housing in Meath is no mean feat.
“I congratulate North & East Housing Association, Meath County Council and NAMA for their work in demonstrating not only to locals, but to the country as a whole that the potential of these sites can be recognised, harnessed and delivered upon and I wish the tenants a very happy future in these wonderful homes”
