HOUSING Minister Eoghan Murphy officially opened the second phase of a housing scheme in Malahide recently.

Phase 2 of the Society of St Vincent De Paul (SVP) St Benedict’s Housing Scheme at Estuary Road comprises an additional eight one-bed units of accommodation for the elderly. 

Fingal County Council and the Department of Housing, Planning & Local Government, through the Capital Assistance Scheme, funded the scheme that was delivered to a very high standard, completed on time and within budget.

The first phase of St Benedict’s was completed in 2009. It comprises 31x1 bed and 6x2 bed units and a community facility.

The scheme has been delivered by the commitment and dedication of the local volunteers of the SVP St Benedict’s Conference and is managed and maintained through a volunteer-led approach supported by an on-site housing manager.

The vision and work of the local volunteers has realised the delivery of accommodation that can sustain older people and people with disabilities to live in their community independently.
