Partner: Fingal County Council (Fingal)
Type of project: Refurbishment of 5 units transferred to Clúid from Fingal
Location: North Dublin
Funding: 80% private loan (from the Housing Finance Agency), 20% Government loan
BER: From G to A3/B3 (supported by the Better Energy Homes Grant)
Interesting fact: Four of the five properties are located in Architectural Conservation Areas
In September 2014, Clúid completed a major refurbishment of five derelict cottages in Howth and Baldoyle. Plagued by vermin infestation, anti-social behaviour and dampness, the cottages had become uninhabitable. For the first time ever Fingal transferred units to Clúid and together they sourced private funding to regenerate the five properties. The area has been transformed by the regeneration; yet, the cottages are fully compliant with relevant conservation regulations, ensuring the architectural integrity of the streetscape.
Clúid refurbished five derelict properties in the Howth and Baldoyle area in collaboration with Fingal County Council through a stock transfer. We are delighted with the quality of the completed units and compliment Clúid for their professionalism in the management of the refurbishment works. We look forward to further opportunities to collaborate with Clúid in the near future.JOE MURPHY - FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL
