Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Declan Hurley has turned the sod on a new development of social housing at Cuan Barra, Kilmore, Ballingeary between the approved housing body Coiste Tithe Uibh Laoire Teo and Droumleigh Construction Limited.
The development will see the construction of three houses providing long-term accommodation.
Cork County Council is the sanctioning authority for the project and assisted in securing funding to the value of €623,545 from the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government through the Capital Assistance Scheme (CAS).
Building is expected to be completed before the end of the year with the properties available for older people in need of social housing from Cork County Council’s Housing list.
Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Declan Hurley said:
“This development will allow older people to live in their own homes for as long as possible and enjoy a high quality of life through established connections with the community.”
