§ Mr. McCusker
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will list all the public authority housing built in Northern Ireland since 1960 which has been demolished or is scheduled for demolition and estimate the value by district council area.
§ Mr. Chris Patten
I have been informed by the chairman of the Northern Ireland Housing Executive that the available information is as follows:
Dwellings demolished or scheduled for demolition District Council area and estate Number of dwellings (i) Belfast Turf Lodge 294 Moyard 204 Divis 259 Blackmountain 210 Lower Sbankill 283 Glencairn 26 Ballysillan Park 180 (ii) Ballymena Doury Road 19 (iii)Newtownabbey Deny hill 27 Portrosse Park 8 Abbeytown Square 5 (iv) Derry Creggan (Rossin Gardens) 8
District Council area and estate Number of dwellings Carranbane 54 Meenan Square 16 (v) Armagh Drumarg 6 (vi) Newry and Mourne Derrybeg 6 St. Brigid's Park, Culloville 2 (vii) Craigavon Drumbeg North 4 Moylinn 1 Churchill Park 35 Legahorry Green 49 Old Rectory, Portadown 2 Ennis Close, Lurgan 81 Rosmoyle, Craigavon 46
It is not possible to value these properties on a common basis; many had no market value before demolition and in some instances demolition was required to improve the amenity of adjacent properties.
