Fold Housing Association is delighted to announce the completion of the 47 recently refurbished homes at the former St Patrick's Barracks site in Ballymena. Over the last twelve months Fold has invested over £3.8m in modernising these former MOD properties and surrounding landscaped areas.
Speaking at the handover, Fold's Director of Development said, Fold was delighted at being chosen to rehabilitate the former MOD homes. Starting with community consultation we managed to regenerate the vacant site. As a result we have a family housing scheme which integrates well into the existing neighbourhood. This latest Fold development will help reduce the high level of housing stress in Ballymena. We would like to thank the local NIHE Office, the local Councillors and MLAs who have supported this project from the date the MOD transfer was announced.
