In answer to the Member’s supplementary question in the House on 8 April, I detailed the social housing plans for the next three-year period. In summary, nine new homes are currently under construction, with a further 218 planned for the period 2002-03 to 2004-05 throughout the Lagan Valley constituency. The Housing Executive, as the arbiter of housing need in the Province, assures me that the current housing needs of the area are largely being met. However, it is also aware that there has recently been an increase in waiting lists and housing stress in many areas, including Lisburn. A review and analysis of these trends is currently in progress. The annual roll-forward of the programme is due to take place in December, and my Department, in consultation with the Housing Executive, will look afresh at the information emanating from the waiting lists in Lagan Valley, and will reprioritise the new-build programme as appropriate.
