Minister Hargey explained: "The challenges in our housing system have been there for many years. That is why I am leading the biggest housing reform programme in over 50 years. I am driving forward to deliver housing options and solutions that our society needs, demands and deserves.

"This £37m investment in North Belfast is evidence that the transformation work will deliver for people, workers and their families."

This project will see the redevelopment of an area between Hillman Street and Stratheden Street. It will result in the construction of 123 new social homes.
