Magee welcomes planning permission for Carrick Hill
Sinn Féin councillor JJ Magee has welcomed the announcement that planning permission is to be granted for social housing at Carrick Hill in North Belfast.
Cllr Magee said:
“These homes are much needed.
“Sinn Féin have campaigned alongside Carrick Hill residents to have these sites used for social housing.
“I would also urge the Housing Executive to pursue the acquisition of other sites as there are 36,000 people on the waiting list, 24,000 in acute housing stress and 12,000 of those in Belfast.
“Sinn Féin will continue to work with Carrick Hill residents to achieve the further provision of homes in that area.
“We will also continue to work with the Housing Executive and other relevant authorities to ensure more homes are built to meet the demand in North Belfast and across the north.”
