DUP MLA Carla Lockhart has expressed concern at the delays in the modernisation project for Huntly Bungalows.

The project which was to make the structures more permanent was due to begin in early 2016 but no work has as yet been undertaken. Residents of the area have been in contact with the Upper Bann MLA asking about the works with particular disquiet as to whether or not the works where still on the agenda.

Speaking on the matter Carla Lockhart said, “I have been in contact with the Housing Executive who assure me the work is still scheduled and they hope to begin in October 2016.

“There is little by way of mitigation for these delays.

“I have asked for an investigation into the delay and will be holding the NIHE to account on the new October date.”
