Clarke welcomes window replacement scheme

Alliance Newcastle Councillor Patrick Clarke has welcomed confirmation received from the Housing Executive that work will commence in September to replace housing executive properties with replacement double glazing in Newcastle.

During the full Council meeting on Monday 28th August the Housing Executive made the announcement during the Down District Housing Plan and Local Housing Strategy 2012/2013 presentation.

The Housing Executive has also agreed to set up a meeting regarding concerns related to the Castlewellan Road social housing scheme being built by Apex Housing in Newcastle.

Speaking to Newry Times, Clarke stated,

“There are quite a number of housing executive properties in Newcastle that still have single pane glazing so the new double glazing window replacement scheme will make a big difference.”

“With rising heating and fuel costs and winter fast approaching the housing executive properties in Newcastle and Dundrum that have qualified will have their windows replaced through the double glazing window replacement scheme.”

He added, “I am also glad that following representations regarding a number of constituents living in properties in Dundrum that these housing executive properties will also be included under the same double glazing window replacement scheme being rolled out across Newcastle during September.”
