Social housing boost for Keady as ‘up to 50’ homes planned as part of £5m contract

The successful applicant will be responsible for the 'supply of land, design and construction' for much-needed social housing in the town


Keady could be in line for a major and much-needed social housing boost.

Up to 50 new homes could be constructed in the town under a new tendering process.

Belfast-based Ark Housing Association is seeking an “economic operator” to “provide land, design and build” projects for the provision of social housing in Keady.

The tender – which has an estimated value of £5 million – is now live.

The successful applicant will have the responsibility for the “supply of land, design and construction of homes to meet statutory requirements, DfC Housing Association Guide and regulatory requirements and Ark Housing Association design standards and performance specifications”.

And the documentation adds: “The competition seeks a minimum of 10 properties up to a maximum of 50.”

Interested parties have until August 30 to apply, with submissions to be opened the following day.

The contract – depending on how many houses are to be built – is for a two-year period.
