Sinn Féin councillor Oonagh Magennis has welcomed the confirmation that work is to begin on 9 homes in Camlough in the coming months.
The Slieve Gullion councillor said:
“This is welcome news for the community of Camlough that 9 new homes will be built in the area.
“Seven of the houses will be for those with additional needs and the remaining two will be for general needs.
“These homes will be built by Belnew developments, a local business, in association with Arbour housing.
“Workers and families across the north can find getting their own home tough and this problem is worsened for those with additional needs.
“This project will help ensure that people who may have struggled to secure appropriate housing before will now have access to suitable homes in their community.
“Building homes is a priority for Sinn Féin. We are committed to building 100,000 social and affordable homes over the next 15 years across the north.”
