Derry City and Strabane District Council has approved plans to build a new high-quality residential development on the lands of the former Adria Factory on Beechmount Avenue in Strabane.

Proposed by Habinteg Housing Association (Ulster) Ltd, the £20 million development will comprise 158 homes as well as community facilities, small business units, public open space, and a children’s play park. The majority of homes within the scheme will be social housing and seek to address the growing need in Strabane town.

Designed by RPP Architects, this new provision of homes will offer a mix of accommodation including general needs, CAT 1 elderly, plus wheel- chair accessible housing and complex needs accommodation.

Darren McKinney, Chief Executive of Habinteg Housing Association, commented: “There has been a lack of new social housing in Strabane over the past decade and we welcome the opportunity to help resolve this shortage.”
