Test for social and affordable housing underway in Rasharkin

Test for social and affordable housing underway in Rasharkin

The Housing Executive is currently working with Triangle Housing Association to determine the need for new housing at a site at Church Road, Rasharkin, Co Antrim.

Running until Monday, 20 December 2021, the rural housing needs test is examining housing demand in the County Antrim village.

The main objective of a housing needs test is to encourage anyone in need of a home in the area to come forward and register their interest via email or over the phone.  Responses will be collated in order to determine if there would be demand for new housing in the village.

If you would like to be considered for housing at the Church Road site in Rasharkin, or for any available social housing in Rasharkin, please call us on 028 9598 2502, email us: [email protected] or visit our website at www.nihe.gov.uk

Normally a housing needs test would include a public information event, however, given that we are in the middle of a global pandemic, a public information session is not possible.  

Therefore, the Housing Executive is focusing on local press articles and its digital channels, as well as making contact with community representatives in an effort to ensure the information reaches those who need it so that their interest can be noted.

As part of this rural housing needs test, the Housing Executive held an art competition with the local primary schools, encouraging pupils to draw their dream ‘spooky’ home.  Computer tablets were awarded to the winners and goodie bags given to the pupils who entered the competition.

If you would like to register your interest please get in touch, by contacting us by email or phone: [email protected] or 02895 982502.  You can also register by completing the online form that will be posted on Facebook and Twitter.
