Tower block residents need assurance over locks - Ní Chuilín

4 August, 2017 - by Carál Ní Chuilín

Sinn Féın MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has said residents in the New Lodge tower blocks need assurances over privacy after master keys to the flats were given to the PSNI.

The party’s housing spokesperson said:

“It is a very welcome move that the PSNI have handed the master keys to the New Lodge tower blocks back to the Housing Executive.

“In order to offer assurance to the residents they should be given the option of having their locks changed. 

“An explanation is needed from the Housing Executive as to why this step was taken in the first place as it was a clear breach of the residents' privacy.”
