New Social Housing for Holywood

I have recently received correspondence from Trinity Housing about new Social Housing for Holywood. More information about this positive development detailed below;

Trinity Housing is in the process of completing an exciting housing scheme consisting of 17 no 2 bedroom Category I Sheltered Apartments, (1 of which is wheelchair accessible), 1 no 3 bedroom general needs house and 1 no 3 bedroom Category 1 wheelchair bungalow, at a cost of over £1,369,000.

The scheme went on site in May 2010 and we anticipate that it will be completed by June 2011.

The homes have achieved Code for Sustainable Homes level 3, Secured by Design and Lifetime Homes Standard which means that tenants should be able to live there for the rest of their lives in total comfort should they desire!

The scheme is very conveniently located to the centre of Holywood, with shops and amenities
close by.

There is high demand for housing in this area, and there has already been interest in the scheme.

Cathy Collins is the Development Officer responsible for overseeing the construction of this scheme. Allocations will be carried out in line with the Common Selection Scheme close to the date of completion.

Trinity Housing is a registered housing association with the Department for Social Development (DSD) R53 and a member of the Northern Ireland Federation of Housing Associations. It was formed in 2007 following an amalgamation of Choice Housing Association and Corinthian Housing Association. Its area of operation is Northern Ireland and its key area of activities are the provision of social housing and support services for the following categories:-
  • elderly accommodation including non-sheltered grouped dwellings, sheltered housing and housing for people with dementia;
  • supported housing for a range of needs including mental illness and learning disability; 
  • and general family housing
Trinity Housing also works with other agencies to provide housing to adults requiring a higher level of support.  Support and care is provided by Health Trusts and or voluntary agencies to enable people to live independently within the community.  

Trinity, as a registered social landlord, works in partnership with other statutory agencies and voluntary organisations including Northern Ireland Housing Executive (NIHE), all recently formed Health & Social Care Trusts and for the provision of specialist care and support, Praxis Care (NI’s largest and leading voluntary charitable care organisation).
