Casey welcomes Town Houses in Barrack Street proposal
Local Sinn Féin Councillor Charlie Casey has welcomed the proposal by Ulidia Housing Association that subject to funding opportunities it is their hope to demolish the building on Barrack Street that was once owned by Phab (Physically Handicapped and Abled Bodied.)
“The building that was once owned by Phab in Barrack Street has been derelict for a couple of years now, it can only be described as an eyesore that devalues the houses surrounding it.
“Ulidia Housing Association now owns the building, I have met and spoken with them on a number of occasions as to what are their future plans for the building. At the previous meeting they have indicated that subject to funding opportunities it is their hope to demolish the building and build Town Houses on the site.
He added, “Four houses in total 2×3 bedrooms and 2×2 bedrooms. I warmly welcome this suggestion as I feel that the removal of the building will tidy up the Barrack Street area and members of the community will welcome this proposal.”
