Welcome for Clanmill social housing programme

Green Party deputy leader Clare Bailey MLA has today, Thursday, 26 May 2016, welcomed that Clanmill Housing is building 55 new homes at Annadale Embankment.

Clare Bailey MLA said,

“It is terrific news that South Belfast is to benefit from 55 social housing new build houses, and even better news that Clanmill Housing Association is building over 600 homes Northern Ireland-wide.

“Not only is Clanmill creating secure, affordable homes, they are investing in the local economy through job creation.

“Given that 60% of Northern Ireland’s privately rented houses are in South Belfast, with 50% of those houses yet to be registered on the landlords’ register, Clanmill’s social housing strategy is badly needed.

“The private rental market is pushing up rents, making them unaffordable. Short term tenancies lead to insecurity.

“A house should be a home, not just a roof over your head. Clanmill Housing Association should be commended for their building programme.”
