SDLP Councillor Declan O’Loan has welcomed a proposal by Trinity Housing to provide 27 social housing units at the former Council Nursery site on Ballymena’s Market Road.

He said he was particularly pleased that most of the units were one or two bedroom apartments and houses which, he said, would provide suitable accommodation for elderly residents.

“When they come to be allocated, I would stress to Trinity Housing and the Housing Executive that they need to be very careful to create a community in this development which will fit in well with its neighbours in what is a long established and settled community,” Mr O’Loan added.
