Twelve new social houses have been completed in the centre of Dún Laoghaire at George’s Place.
The ten 2-bed terraced houses and two 2-bed semi-detached houses are part of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council’s housing delivery target of 1,563 social housing homes by 2021.
It is expected that the social houses will be available for dlr tenants in the coming weeks.
Speaking at the opening of the new homes today, Minister for Housing and Urban Development, Damien English said:
“Today is an example of the tireless work being carried out in Local Authorities across the country in implementing the action plan laid out in Rebuilding Ireland.”
Cllr Tom Murphy, Cathaoirleach of dlr said:
“In setting out our ambition for this project dlr wanted sustainably designed and well-constructed, quality houses which achieved a BER A1 energy rating. We are delighted with the open, transparent and collaborative relationship we developed with our construction partner, John Sisk & Son, who have delivered on all fronts – safe, quality, on budget & timely delivery.
“The provision of social and affordable housing is the Council’s main priority and we are delighted to formally take possession of these houses today and look forward to getting families settled into their new homes.”
