New £2.5million rural housing for Culcavy
Social Development Minister, Mervyn Storey MLA, officially opened Apex’s new housing scheme in Culcavy, Hillsborough which provides 22 new family homes.
At the opening, the Minister said:
Apex is to be congratulated for putting together such an attractive package of energy efficient homes in an area of high housing need. This is high quality, well-appointed accommodation for 22 families that will make significant inroads into waiting lists in the area. I wish all the tenants well for the future in their new homes.”
Marion Johnston lives in one of the new two bedroom homes along with her grandson Curtis. She is delighted with her new accommodation and took time out to show Minister Storey around her new home. Following the Minister’s visit, Marion said:
I love everything about my new home from the open plan layout downstairs to my spacious bedroom. I am from the Culcavy area and was really pleased that Apex built these homes in this rural area.”
Gerry Kelly, Chief Executive of Apex said:
The Hillsborough area is one of the most expensive areas in Northern Ireland to purchase a property making it difficult for local families on low incomes to remain in the area. The new Apex scheme at Annacloy Park will provide modern, energy efficient accommodation at an affordable rent for families who previously were struggling to find suitable accommodation in this area.”
