With regard to the specific project mentioned, I can confirm that the project received conditional Capital Advance Leasing Facility (CALF) funding approval in 2019 for 34 social housing homes.My Department actively engages with the local authority and the Approved Housing Body (AHB) concerned. I understand that following withdrawal of the preferred bidder from the procurement process, the project had to be retendered.

The AHB recently submitted a revised funding application to my Department, following the new tender process and selection of a new preferred bidder, and this application is currently under review.

My Department publishes a quarterly Social Housing Construction Projects Status Report, which sets out the continuing progress being made in advancing the national local authority and AHB new-build pipeline. The latest report, setting out the position at end Q3 2022, can be accessed on my Department's website at the following link:
