HC Deb 17 December 1984 vol 70 cc62-3W
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
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.
