Fingal New Homes

31 homes were acquired across two developments in Balbriggan and another in Clonsilla in partnership with Fingal County Council. Nine homes were purchased in The Glebe, Balbriggan with eleven purchased in Bremore Pastures, and an additional eleven in Castlegrange, Clonsilla.  The Glebe consists of a single terrace of 3-bed houses while a mix of houses and apartments were acquired in Bremore Pastures and Castlegrange. All 31 homes have been allocated to families from Fingal County Councils social housing waiting. CALF funding from the Department of Environment and private finance from the Housing Finance Agency (HFA) was utilised to facilitate the acquisitions.

 

 

Cork Acquisitions

Túath completed two NARPS leased schemes in Cork, both consisting of ten homes. We worked closely with NAMA and Cork County Council to deliver houses in Tir Cluain, Midleton which have been allocated to families from the council’s waiting list and also to tenants who had to decant from their existing homes due to flood damage. The second scheme in Maryborough Ridge, Douglas is a mix of apartments, duplexes and terrace houses. Both developments were completed to a high standard with a full internal fit-out including furniture, flooring and appliances. Túath are delighted to have strengthened its presence within both schemes, where the association already provides social homes in partnership with the Council.

Capital Assistance Scheme (CAS)

Picture 6A number of one-off CAS purchases were made in Counties Cork and Monaghan including a 3-bed bungalow which has been acquired in partnership with Cheshire Ireland and Cork County Council. The property will be specially adapted to meet the needs of the residents.

The association also purchased a 2-bed apartment in Monaghan in partnership with Monaghan County Council. The availability of CAS funding has helped tenants find safe and secure places to live, and we thank the DECLG and the relevant local authorities for their assistance in completing these acquisitions.

We also purchased 36 two-bed adapted homes in Clonmullion Retirement Village, Athy. The Association has purchased them through CALF and private finance with the HFA. All current tenants will remain in their homes with a secure tenure going forward.

Túath are delighted to  have increased its overall number of owned units and thank both Kilkenny and Kildare County Councils for their support and assistance in the ‘anchoring’ of these high quality homes in the County’s permanent supply of social housing.

Wicklow County Council Collaboration Greystones Apartments Delivered

The association’s woWicklowrking relationship with Wicklow CoCo was strengthened this year resulting in the delivery of much needed homes within the County. April saw the delivery of seven high quality apartments within the La Touche development in Greystones.

Túath worked in partnership with NAMA, Wicklow County Council and the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government to acquire the properties. A planning restriction on this development means that all tenants must be over the age of 55 and as a result all properties have been fully adapted to meet the needs of the end user. They have been exclusively allocated to over 55’s from the Council’s waiting list.
