A contract has been awarded for a much-needed social housing development in Derrytrasna.
In all, 14 units are to be built on lands opposite St Mary’s Primary School.
The main contract for the work has been awarded to Kelly Brothers Building Contractors, from Warrenpoint.
The development will comprise three three-bedroom properties, together with 11 two-bedroom units.
The planned scheme was given the go-ahead by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council back in May.
The appointment of a main contractor means that the project can now get off the ground.
In addition to the housing, the development will include a new vehicle access, as well as car parking, landscaping and general associated siteworks.
