Portadown social housing

Plans have been drawn up for a new social housing scheme in Portadown.

An application has been submitted to Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council which is now due to be publicly advertised this week.

A total of eight units have been proposed by Portadown-based Arbour Housing, which was formerly known as the South Ulster Housing Association.

The earmarked location is on “lands approximately 105m north west of 34-36 Ballyoran Manor, Drumcree Road, Portadown”. It is currently described as a “greenfield” site.

The application specifically indicates that these are to be social housing units.

They would comprise four three-person two-bedroom apartments, as well as two two-person one-bedroom apartments.

In addition, there would be two wheelchair accessible apartments, designed for three people and boasting two bedrooms.

Upon consideration, a recommendation would be expected in the New Year.
