OVER 600 Fermanagh homes are to benefit from a £1 million window replacement scheme, the largest ever project of its kind by the Housing Executive.
Work has already begun on the scheme, which will see 628 homes in the county receiving double glazed PVC windows, along with 28 properties in the Omagh area.
The Housing Executive’s south west area manager Oonagh McAvinney said the scheme showed the body’s commitment to improving people’s homes and was a substantial investment in Fermanagh.
“This is the largest window replacement scheme ever undertaken by the Housing Executive and we are delighted it is taking place in the South West region. This is a clear indication of our commitment to deliver quality service and invest in homes and neighbourhoods.
Dixon Contractors from Co Antrim have been assigned to carry out the work, which began in February in Kilmacormick and will be carried out on a phased basis. It is due to be completed by September this year.
Aside from Kilmacormick Avenue, Close, Drive and Road in Enniskillen, the other areas where homes will receive new windows in the first phase are: Beech Hill, Sycamore Drive and Willowvale in Cavanaleck, Enniskillen; Sally’s Wood, Brownhill Meadows, Bridge Street, Hudson Heights, Pound Street, Reihill Park and Townhill Park in Irvinestown; Crevenish Park, Erne Park and Mantlin Park in Kesh; and Glendarragh Park in Ederney.
Phase two, where work is expected to begin this month, will take in Camphill Park, Aghagay Park, Mill Hill Road, and some properties at Galloon Gardens in Newtownbutler; Finn Park in Roslea; Trasna Way in Lisnaskea; Knockninny Park, Fortlea, and Main Street Derrylin; Harryville, Tattinderry Heights, and Main Street Maguiresbridge; and Brooke Crescent and Castlehill Road in Brookeborough.
Also included in phase two are Tattygare Park in Lisbeallaw; Drumawill Park, Cleenish Park, Lisgoole Park and the Cornagrade Road in Enniskillen; and Castle Street Irvinestown.
The Housing Executive have said the contractor will advise each tenant individually when the work is due to be done, with disruption for the tenants being kept to a minimum.
