“The SDLP have been at the fore front of efforts to deliver more social housing in the Lurgan area.
“Given our history and origins particular in the provision of social housing, I am very pleased to see that after several years our efforts have come to fruition. We are pleased to have successfully lobbied for and facilitated a partnership between Boconnell Properties and Arbour Housing Association formerly South Ulster Housing Association.
“The provision of five, five-person 3-bedroom houses is very much welcome and will go a long way in meeting the increasing demand for social and affordable housing in Aghagallon.
“Boconnell Properties have a proven track record of building good quality homes and Arbour Housing Association is a well-respected housing provider in the council area.
“It is very encouraging to see this scheme progressing which delivers for people, it supports local jobs in the construction industry, and it will help to ensure rural schools in the area are supported in the future.
