Work to Begin on €4.8m Housing Developments in Ardrahan and Ballinasloe

Galway County Council has signed contracts for the construction of two new housing developments in Ardrahan and Ballinasloe. The Local Authority, in conjunction with the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, has appointed a multi-disciplinary Design Team, led by OBFA Architects, to assist with delivering the housing projects.

The 10-unit housing development at Caisléan Raithin, Ardrahan is being constructed by Jada Construction and consists of 3 single-storey two-bed dwellings, 1 two-storey three-bed dwelling and 6 two-storey two-bed dwellings. Pat Loftus Construction Ltd. will construct an 8-unit housing development comprising 2 single-storey two-bed houses and 6 two-storey two-bed houses at St. Joseph’s Place in Ballinasloe.

Funded under the Government’s ‘Housing for All’ Plan to 2030’, the 18 homes will be constructed at a cost of €4.8 million. Construction work will begin this month.

Cllr. Liam Carroll, Cathaoirleach of Galway County Council commented, “The design, accessibility and usability of previous local authority-led developments in County Galway have been of the highest standard and I am sure these schemes will be welcomed by applicants on Galway County Council’s waiting list for social housing. I wish to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of the Council’s housing staff in progressing both projects.”

Cllr. Carroll also welcomed the sustainable use of land and existing infrastructure to provide infill housing at two existing housing estates.

Liam Conneally, Chief Executive of Galway County Council said, “The provision of much needed homes for people in rural towns and villages across County Galway is a core priority of Galway County Council. With the support of the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, under ‘Housing for All’, we are committed to addressing the County’s housing need by delivering homes that enable families and individuals to become valuable members of the community where they will help sustain local schools, shops, clubs and services.”
