Newington sees completion of the New Lodge ‘Upper Long Streets’ Redevelopment
The Association is pleased to announce the completion of the current phases of the New Lodge ‘Upper Long Streets’; with the final 17 new homes handed over to our successful applicants in early July 2019.
In total, 88 new homes were completed and handed over to new our tenants between June 2018 and July 2019.
The Association held several successful Tenant Information Days throughout the process within New Lodge Youth Centre, for all new tenants that were re-housed within Phase 1 – 5. These events have been vital in assisting new tenants to quickly settle into their new homes and to help them in availing vital local amenities and services, if/when they require them. During the events, representatives from Newington Housing, statutory, community and voluntary organisations provided an overview of their organisation and what services and/or support is available from them.
Newington Housing wishes to extend our appreciation to our parent organisation Apex Housing Association, the main contractor for the development Kevin Watson Group, New Lodge Youth Centre, the local community and all those who played a pivotal role in ensuring the delivery of these essential new homes, for the local area.
