Apex delivered over 25% of last year’s social houses in N. Ireland
Ray Forbes, Director of Development and Procurement at Apex Housing Association confirms that Apex is committed to the Programme for Government and states that the big issue moving forward is to obtain more land to meet an acute housing need.
He wants public sector bodies and councils to make surplus land available to housing associations to build much needed homes.
Ray was speaking from the new Apex North Queen Street development of 26 family homes which sits on the site of a former PSNI station and is bounded by Clifton House Mews to the west and Clifton House to the south. Ray states:
We all need to work together to provide much needed social housing.”
Clifton House buildings are listed and sit in a historic park and gardens, its proximity to the site influenced how the new development will look. The houses will have a tradition look and compliment the more recently completed adjacent housing developments. It is due for completion in September 2016.
By building this new development Apex is helping to secure a brighter future for this particular community and looks forward to doing the same in other urban and rural areas throughout Northern Ireland.
