A delay is being reported in the delivery of rapid build homes in Cavan to house Ukrainians.
The Department of Integration has confirmed to Northern Sound News that the modular homes will not be completed until the end of May with residents moving into their homes in June.
The 30 modular homes that are being built to house Ukrainian Refugees on a site in Cavan Town were originally due to be built and ready to move in by early 2023. The department confirmed that the 2 bed homes would be ready to be lived in by the end of March at a cost 8.4 million euros.
This means that the average cost of each unit will stand at 280,000 euros, a department spokesperson confirmed. It's not yet known if any further costs will be added due to the delay in the roll out of these homes.
The development at Drumnavanagh on the Farnham Road is expected to house up to 120 Ukrainians. The Cavan Town development will consist of the installation of 30 single storey semi- detached units each with 2-bedrooms at 45 metres squared.
When completed there will be 32 on-street car parking spaces, a bin store, bicycle stores, pavements, public lighting, landscaping, ESB substation, potable water connections, and all ancillary site development works.
