Local TD and Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien has approved funding of €1.7M under the Affordable Housing Fund for 23 affordable purchase homes at Castleland Park Balbriggan.
The Affordable Housing Fund (AHF) is a Department of Housing scheme which is available to local authorities and enables them to make affordable homes available to eligible purchasers at prices significantly below market rates.
Commenting Minister O’Brien said, “I am very pleased to again be able to give approval for much needed affordable homes in Fingal and I have to commend Fingal County Council for another comprehensive and successful application to the fund.
“This Government have a plan, Housing for All, and it sets us on a path to deliver thousands more of these homes all across the country.
“As a TD for North County Dublin I know just how acutely the affordability constraints are felt by people, young and not so young, and the struggle they face in finding a home in their own locality. We want to put the dream of homeownership back in reach for these people.
“This is merely the start of hundreds of affordable homes which will be delivered in the Castlelands area,” he concluded.
