Public meeting to discuss Moycullen social housing

A public meeting will take place in Moycullen this week to discuss the development of social housing in the village.

It was announced in September that the council was buying an estate at Kylebroughlan, Moycullen for €15 million in order to deliver 49 social housing units.

Later that month Connemara councillors voted to defer a masterplan to deliver 100 social units in the Moycullen area.

Councillor Noel Thomas, who is one of the organisers of this meeting said at the time that he is not against social housing, but that it should be mixed in with private residences rather than having estates exclusively devoted to it.

“The purpose of the meeting is to provide whatever information we have in relation to the development plans for the village,” county councillor Thomas said.

“It is very important that any development taking place should be integrated into the community in a responsible and balanced manner.”

The public meeting will take place at 8pm on Friday, November 8 at Scoil Mhuire, Moycullen.
