A total of 67 families who have been on the social housing waiting list in County Meath for an average of seven years have received the keys to their new homes.
Cluid Housing, in partnership with Glenveagh Properties, and Meath County Council have delivered the new houses in a brand new estate located at Milltown Meadows in Ashbourne, bringing much needed affordable housing to the area.
The development, a mix of two, three and four bed houses, provides the families easy access to the city, as well as a range of local services.
The Minister of State at the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government, Damien English who attended the launch of these homes said:
“The provision of high-quality housing supports to help individuals and families meet their housing need across all tenures is one of the key objectives of Rebuilding Ireland An Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness.
“The delivery of these much needed homes in Milltown Meadows, Ashbourne is a tangible example of the importance of partnerships between Approved Housing Bodies, such as Clúid Housing Association, the local authority, in this case Meath County Council, and a developer in getting homes built; furthermore, the delivery of these homes demonstrates this Government’s commitment to that objective.
“Developments such as Milltown Meadows will anchor strong communities, a performing economy and an environment of quality.”
