The Sinn Féin Councillor said, “I am delighted to hear that Belnew Developments Ltd, a registered Newry Company has Outline Planning Permission to build 15 residential social homes in association with South Ulster Housing, just off the Newtown Rd, near McCrink’s Loanin in Camlough.



“Three of these houses will be specifically adapted to meet the need of families with disability access, who have been on the housing list for an extensive period of time.

“The infrastructure of McCrink’s Loanin will be improved and adapted to facilitate this new development.

“It is hoped there will be very few issues with regards to getting full Planning Permission, and that the building of these homes will commence in the very near future.”

The local Councillor continued, “There is a dire need for social housing in the Camlough area, and indeed throughout the District, and the Planning Department must realise this.



“The fact that Outline Planning Permission has already been granted, and that the Department for Infrastructure (DfI)  has agreed to the proposals, should mean little issues in the Planning Process.”

The Sinn Féin elected representative added, “This development will go some way to alleviate the social and affordable housing crisis that is evolving at speed throughout areas like Camlough and further afield.



“Developments like this also act as a stimulant to the local economy in an already thriving village.”
