Mr Patsy McGlone (Mid Ulster): To ask the Minister for Communities to detail plans for new build social housing in Mid Ulster for the next five years.
Minister for Communities: The Social Housing Development Programme (SHDP) is currently formulated on a 3-year basis. The information in relation to the Mid Ulster Parliamentary Constituency below is therefore provided on this basis.
There are currently 15 social housing units under construction. The detail of these units I have provided in Table 1 below;
There are 65 social housing units programmed to start as part of the SHDP 2022/23 – 2024/25. The detail of these units I have provided in Table 2 below.
Please note that programmed schemes can be lost or slip to future programme years for a variety of reasons e.g. relating to delays in acquiring sites and/or failure to secure Planning Approval. Additional schemes can also be added to the SHDP ‘in-year’ through the Competitive Land, Design & Build procurement route and/or the purchase of Existing Satisfactory / Off-the-Shelf properties.
