A representative of Clanmil gave a presentation to the council and identified areas of housing need in Balnamore and Bendooragh as well as in Ballymoney.

She has urged the council to explore opportunities for partnership work with Clanmil in relation to creating “safe and sustainable neighbourhoods.”

Councillor Finlay said he feels it would be in the Council’s best interests to form a partnership with Clanmil Housing to address the issue of social accommodation in the Borough.

Clanmil Group Director of Housing, Colette Moore, outlined the aims and objectives of the Association to Ballymoney Council.

Ms Moore said there was a need for houses in Ballymoney town as well as Balnamore and Bendooragh and that Clanmil was actively seeking development opportunities in those areas. She added that due to reductions in Government funding, housing associations have to secure private finance to fund new schemes.
