Government makes €15m for delivery of over 1,000 affordable homes in Mulhuddart

Friday, December 14, 2018

The government has provided €11 million for the development of over 1,000 affordable homes in Mulhuddart.

I welcome the announcement of this funding under the Serviced Sites Fund, which will be invested in infrastructure to deliver land for over 1,000 affordable homes in Mulhuddart, Dublin 15.

Of the €43m allocated nationally, Fingal received €15m which is a big vote of confidence in our council's ability to deliver on housing and infrastructure. The provision of housing remains a top priority for Fine Gael and I commend all those who have worked to deliver this superb outcome.

The Church Fields site in Mulhuddart, comprises 37 hectares of land, of which 25 hectares is the main development area. A Land Management Plan will have the potential to support approximately 1,000 homes with a mix of social units, private discounted units, cost rental units and older people’s accommodation.

The project involves the extension and upgrade of Wellview Avenue, the provision of green infrastructure, as well as the construction of a new neighbourhood centre and three community centres.

Representatives from the Dublin 15 community picked up the award at a glittering ceremony held in Cork City Hall on Saturday, November 17.

Judges said they were very impressed by Corduff’s Pride of Place presentation during their visit to the area.

“After being greeted by singing from the local school, the judges heard a great story of endeavour, initiative, determination, partnership and achievement to be justifiably proud of,” the judge’s report read.

“The very well attended presentation in the community resource centre, which reflected on the community’s endeavours, and meeting a number of the community groups all created an expectation that our tour of this area would visibly show the fruits of the community’s hard work and drive.

“This community through its resilience and community spirit have managed many major social issues making them a worthy winner.”

Members of the Corduff groups joined with 800 community heroes from across the country at the awards.

The Pride of Place awards celebrates the often unsung work of community groups that work to make local neighbourhoods a better place to live in, work in or visit.

The awards sees local authorities, on both sides of the border, nominate outstanding projects that contribute to civic pride.
