Longford is in need of an affordable housing scheme

Longford badly needs an affordable housing scheme to help people who don’t qualify for mortgages with mainstream banks, according to Independent councillor Gerry Warnock.

He says there’s a huge problem with people on low wages who also don’t qualify for social housing.

A new affordable housing policy was adopted by the council this week, however, Cllr Warnock says there’s an urgent need to resolve the problem.
