Would you like to live in Whitecross? Do you think the Whitecross area needs more housing? whitecross1These are the questions the Housing Executive is asking local residents as it carries out a survey to help decide if there is a need for new social housing for rent in Whitecross. The Housing Executive wants to hear from people who would like to live in Whitecross but can’t find suitable accommodation. As part of the survey the Housing Executive is looking at interest in buying an affordable home through shared ownership – part buy/part rent. Anyone who needs a home is encouraged to register their interest by 25th March 2016. Area Manager, Owen McDonnell, explained, “Traditionally the Housing Executive checks its housing waiting list to determine housing need. However, we find in some rural areas people do not register their interest in an area as they feel they will have little chance of being housed there. This means need for new housing can remain hidden.” Owen added, “Therefore, it is essential anyone in genuine housing need in and around the Whitecross area comes forward and registers their interest with us.” If the Housing Executive assesses that there is a need, it will be highlighted to housing associations to look for an appropriate site to develop. If you or somebody you know is interested in living in Whitecross, you can call the Housing Executive on 028 3831 5870 or e-mail South.Planning@nihe.gov.uk quoting “LD Whitecross”.
