Each unit will consist of 4 individual living accommodation – made up of ensuite room up to current HIQA standards and each unit then will have a communal sitting room, quiet room, visitor room and dining room.TD Pat the Cope welcomed the approval which will move this development to the next stage, it is expected that planning permission will be sought within months as a great deal of the preparatory work has already been carried out for this development. Pat the Cope said: “I expect tenders to be sought for the 3 Units in late 2017, with construction to commence immediately afterwards. When completed it is anticipated that the 3 units will provided assisted living accommodation for 12 people. “This development will replace the existing unit on the Church Road at Dungloe. The proposed new development is expected to cost around €1.4 million euro and will be funded by the Department of Housing. Pat the Cope added; “I wish to pay tribute to the Parents and Friends of the Donegal Housing Association project, who have worked tirelessly and have brought this project to fruition. “They have dedicated a great deal of time and planning into making this project a success. I wish also to pay tribute to the officials of the Housing Section of Donegal County Council for their excellent work on this project. I will maintain the pressure on the Department of Housing; in order this project moves seamlessly into construction stage and with the co-operation of Donegal County Council I expect this project to be underway without any further delay after tender stage. “The new development will be an immense benefit for the broader community and west Donegal,” concluded Pat the Cope.
