NAMA sites for social housing
One such site is the NAMA-owned St Edmund’s Housing Development, opposite the Arc Bar at Liffey Valley, and it has been touted by the local authority as a potential site for social housing.
The plans come at a time when The Echo has revealed that there are a total of 10,800 people on the social housing list across the county.
NAMA informed the council of 120 unfinished develop-ments at St Edmund’s that could be utilised, but the number of units are yet to be agreed by both parties.
However Clondalkin councillor Eoin Ó Broin believes that the council could make better use of the money by investing in a completely new social housing development opposite Kilcarbary Estate.
