New Development for Social Housing Tenants for Ardee

Louth County Council are delighted to announce the launch of a modern new development for social housing tenants at Cúirt na gCloch, Stoney Lane , Ardee.

The scheme includes 14 newly built two bedroom bungalows, which have been designed with the needs of older people, and people with disabilities, in mind.

Features such as level access showers have been included as standard, and all of the units are fitted with air to heat pumps and are listed as A rated BER homes.

A number of the units have also been allocated under the Safe Home Ireland programme, which assists older Irish born emigrants in returning home to secure accommodation in Ireland.

Additional facilities include the installation of two EV charging points within the development.

The housing units were recently acquired from Darra Bridge Housing Ltd. following a Turnkey Expression of Interest call for 2022, and Louth County Council are pleased to have secured the properties which are ready for allocation to tenants from the social housing list in the coming days.

Paddy Donnelly, Director of Services, Social Development, at Louth County Council said the new units were a welcome addition to the local authority housing stock.

“I am pleased this fine development has been completed and is now ready for occupation by tenants from the approved housing list. Tenants will be delighted with these homes which have been finished to the highest standard.”

Joan Martin, Chief Executive of Louth County Council visited the houses at Cúirt na gCloch this week, where she said: “County Louth has been given a very ambitious social housing targets under the government’s Housing For All strategy. The council will use every method available, including Louth County Council own build, Turnkeys, Part V units and houses from Approved Housing Bodies.”
