Clúid Housing delivers 40 new homes in Kinsale, Cork
Clúid Housing are proud to announce the completion of the Radharc an tSaile development, delivering 40 new homes for people in housing need in Kinsale, Cork. The newly constructed scheme will be home to over 100 people, a mix of both families and single people. The project is the result of a partnership between Clúid, Cork County Council, the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, the Housing Finance Agency (HFA) and local Cork company MMD Construction.
Discussing the new scheme, James O’Halloran, Clúid’s New Business and Development Manager, commented: “Clúid Housing is delighted to deliver these new homes in partnership with Cork County Council, the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, the Housing Finance Agency and MMD Construction. These 40 new A-rated homes not only address the need for new social housing in the area, they provide greener homes with lower fuel bills for our residents.”
The scheme is comprised of 18 two-bed and 20 three-bed houses, as well as 2 two-bed dwellings adapted specifically for residents with additional needs. Completed for Clúid by MMD Construction, Radharc an tSaile is a scheme of highly efficient A-rated homes, incorporating the latest mechanical and electrical services. Clúid financed the construction of these new homes, to the value of €9.7m, through a loan facility from the Housing Finance Agency (HFA) and a Capital Advance and Availability Payment from the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage.
Radharc an tSaile will be home to over 100 local residents. The majority of homes have already been allocated and will see residents moving in this week, with the remaining allocations taking place in the coming weeks. All nominations for homes in the scheme have come from Cork County Council’s housing list. Located close to Kinsale town centre, Radharc an tSaile offers residents the convenience of local amenities including schools, shops, sports clubs and other community services.
Clúid already has a strong profile in Cork with over 1,200 homes across the city and county. Throughout 2021, Clúid will continue to meet the housing needs of local people with the delivery of 16 new homes in Skibbereen and commencement works will begin on 15 new homes in Bantry.
