THERE are a lot of Clare families facing housing difficulties this Christmas, so we were delighted to hear that there are 40 new social houses on the way.
Junior Minister Pat Breen has announced that more than €7.8 million has been allocated for the construction of 40 new homes in Ennis.
Funding of €7,854,000 is being provided by the Local Authority Housing Construction Programme for the construction of 40 new Social Homes at Ashline on the Kilrush Road, Ennis.
“These 40 new homes will provide much needed housing for people on the housing waiting list in Clare. These will be comfortable homes suitable for families of all sizes,” he added.
The housing scheme will be made up of 30 three bedroom homes, four four bedroom homes and six two bedroom homes.
The Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government will issue the approval in principle to Clare County Council tomorrow (Wednesday, November 29).
“The approval of this housing scheme is another move in the right direction towards tackling the housing shortage in our county and county town.
“It follows on from precious social housing announcements for Ennis, Quilty, Clonlara, Feakle and Shannon,” Minister Breen added.
