HOMES in the Avenue Road estate area are to receive replacement of their single glazed windows with double glazing, it has been announced..

Speaking on the matter Alderman Stephen Moutray MLA and Cllr Carla Lockhart said “This is an issue that we have been lobbying on for some time and we are delighted that progress is being made in this regard.

“We have been inundated with requests from tenants, particularly senior citizens, who have been struggling with the rise in heating costs.

“We are delighted with this progress and will be working with the Housing Executive and residents to ensure that this scheme comes to fruition.

“Many of the residents who require double glazing have been residents of the estate for many years and are deserving of this long overdue replacement scheme.

“Residents have relayed to us their delight at this and we are looking forward to the work commencing.”
