Maghera kitchen
Good news for Maghera, 73 of our tenant’s homes are to receive brand new kitchens.
At a cost of over £426k Housing Executive homes in the Maghera, Bellaghy and Draperstown areas will benefit from this makeover.  
Prior to work starting every tenant had a one to one consultation so they could have an input into what finishes they would like. This consultation was well received and feedback on the kitchens has been positive. The work is being carried out in partnership with Patrick F. Corr Ltd Chartered Surveyors and Lowry Brothers Ltd.
Welcoming this investment, Michael Dallat, our Area Manager, said:
“This is great news for the area and I am delighted with the level of input our tenants are able to give. They are able to select their own units, worktops and tiles so they are getting the kitchen they really want.  
“This investment is building on the Housing Executive’s continued commitment to maintain and improve our homes. Within the area we are delighted to have brought even more improvements to our tenants including, where need, double-glazing, more energy efficient heating systems and improvements to the outside of homes.”
Mrs Dinsmore, who is delighted with her new kitchen, has the final word:
“It was great to be offered the opportunity of a new kitchen. It’s been very exciting getting to pick the new look and I’m looking forward to it being completed.”
