Louth County Council say that the Part 8 process for seven new housing units at the Oaklee devlopment on Tierney Street in Ardee has concluded – with the houses scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017.
Houses in the latest phase of the development in Ardee will be designed for people with intellectual disabilites. The homes will be made specifically to house multiple people with intellectual disabilities.
Work was expected to begin on the seven new builds last year. They had been due for completion in December 2016 but due to delays, the Part 8 process has only recently been completed and pre-tender estimates and work are now awaiting approval. It is scheduled to began this summer and finish by the end of the year.
The site is part of a small development of previously built affordable sites and dwellings built by Oaklee for Louth County Council.
The seven new homes being built on Tierney Street are part of the Capital Assistance Scheme which provides Approved Housing Bodies with funding to build or acquire units for disabled or homeless housing list applicants.
107 new homes are being built at the Castle Guard development in Ardee – the first phase of which is well underway. 29 homes are going up as part of the first phase of that build.
