A FACELIFT costing £500,000 has been announced for 211 Housing Executive homes in Andersonstown in west Belfast.

The homes, which are a mixture of two- storey houses, maisonettes, flats and bungalows, had previous external improvement works carried out in 1999.

The latest maintenance work is being carried out to protect the exterior of the homes, while bringing them up to modern standards.

Defective windows and external doors will be replaced and other typical enhancements include cleaning and repair of roofs, fascias, rainwater systems, paths, steps, fences, railings and gates prior to painting.

Communal areas in blocks of flats and maisonettes will also be upgraded and redecorated, and fire-resistant entrance doors will be fitted.

Jan Sweeney, the HE's local district manager, said tenants had been fully consulted about the plans, and her staff would work closely with the community to ensure that work progressed as smoothly as possible.

The maintenance work will be carried out on a phased basis to homes in Cavanmore Gdns, Edenmore Dr, Glassmullin Gdns, Glenshane Gdns, Greenan, Inishmore Cres, Navan Green, Slieveban Dr, Slievegallion Dr and Tullymore Gdns.
