Sinn Féin MLA Deirdre Hargey has said today is a ‘landmark day’ as the Housing Executive begins building homes for the first time in over 20 years.
Deirdre Hargey said:
“It’s fantastic news that the Housing Executive will begin building homes again for the first time in over two decades.
“A key element of the housing plan brought forward by Sinn Féin was to enable the Housing Executive to build high-quality public homes for families again.
“The new development at Sunningdale Gardens is a landmark step in that process, and more progress on the commitment to build more homes in areas where they are needed most.
“We need the Assembly up and running now to continue the house building programme and to continue delivering legislation to transform housing.”
