Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Ó Donnghaile welcomes Short Strand Social Housing Boost

24 February, 2009

Sinn Féin's East Belfast Representative Niall Ó Donnghaile has welcomed today's news that 27 Apartments on the Short Strand in East Belfast will be used by Clanmill Housing association for social units.

Speaking this afternoon Mr Ó Donnghaile said,

"I want to welcome this boost for the local community and in particularly for those currently languishing on the housing waiting list.

"Sinn Féin is constantly campaigning for the development of the necessary social housing for this part of the city. This announcement will come as good news to everyone as there has been, up until now, a degree of uncertainty around the future for the Pottinger's Quay development.

"I look forward to working with Clanmill Housing Association to ensure that this development will be as good as it can possibly be for the residents who will live there.

"Sinn Féin will continue to campaign for social and affordable housing as well as the highest standard of community facilities for this part of East Belfast and beyond." CRÍOCH
