New Homes Needed for Newry – Kimmins

Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins has said that new homes need to be built to address the growing need across Newry and Armagh for social and affordable homes.

Speaking after meeting Choice Housing with Mickey Brady MP, the Newry and Armagh MLA said:

“Sinn Féin recently met with senior officials from Choice Housing to discuss the need for more social housing in the area and the impact that the cost-of-living crisis is having on meeting this demand.

“Our offices are dealing with more and more people who are on the waiting list for a home.

“Sinn Féin’s plan for housing would build 100,000 social and affordable homes over the next 15 years.

“However, we now have no assembly, no executive and not even caretaker ministers to support key projects such as this as a result of the DUP’s boycott of our political institutions.

“It is unacceptable that ordinary workers and families would be punished further for the DUP’s failure to show up for work.”
