I revealed on the blog last month that 27 apartments at the top of the short strand were to be used by clanmill for social housing units, you can read the story here http://glormhicairt.blogspot.com/2009/02/good-news-for-short-strand.html
DSD Minister Margaret Ritchie has also welcomed the news http://www.dsdni.gov.uk/index/news_items/ritchie-welcomes-social-110309.htm
We all know the level of housing need within the short strand area, i deal with people every single day looking to remain in the area they grew up in. Demand is high and given that the Housing Executive works of a points based common selection list it is vitally important that people get their names down now!
