Petition regarding the construction of 79 Clanmill Housing Association properties in Hedgeleigh and Holstein Hall

We, the undersigned, as residents of the Hedgeleigh and Holstein Hall developments in Lisburn, are strongly opposed to the plans by Eglinton Developments to sell 79 properties to Clanmill Housing Association for the use of social housing.

We feel that 79 social housing units in what has until now been a fully private residential development, and which we had been led to believe it would continue to remain, will greatly impact upon us as a community by way of potential for anti social behaviour, crime, drugs and alcohol abuses, and also the devaluation of homes which we have invested heavily in.

The foundation for our concerns are based upon the record of other new build properties in Lisburn being immediately allocated to those on the NIHE waiting list with the highest housing points.
These are very often people who have been removed from other areas and towns due to their own anti social behaviour, which they then bring with them to the new area they are housed in and 79 properties with potential tenants of this caliber would prove extremely damaging to the area.

We are concerned that the plans for the houses are not in keeping with the rest of the development. 
We have not been provided with any information regarding the sale of properties to social housing, and feel we should be given the opportunity to voice our opinions.

There is a meeting for the plans of the social housing to be approved on Monday 6th morning 10am and at present there have been no objections. If you object to this going ahead please sign the petition and this can hopefully be presented at the meeting.
