IRSP spokesperson Thomas Dixon today welcomed plans by Habinteg housing Association to purchase properties in Connor Court for social housing.

Commenting he said “The Irish Republican Socialist Party welcomes news today that Habinteg Housing Association is in the process of purchasing the vacant properties in Connor Court in Crawford Square. During our “House the Homeless” campaign two years ago the IRSP called for this very scheme to be purchased for social housing to help alleviate the housing crisis in Derry.

Mr Dixon went on “There are thousands on the housing list in this city and the imminent opening up of these apartments to those on the housing list is very welcome news. We would now demand that no restrictions be placed on those who will be allocated these apartments and those allocations be made on the basis of need.

In concluding Mr Dixon said “We are glad to see that calls from groups such as ourselves have led to positive outcomes and that homeless people in this city will now have access to quality housing in Crawford Square.”
