Well I kind of do actually. My house backs onto theirs.

You seem to have dodged my question, what should society do with these people in your opinion??? Where should they live in your opinion?

Well we're living there and haven't heard or seen any of the issues you mention, or heard that opinion from any of our neighbours in the Park, unless it was an earlier phase you heard this in. Everyone seems happy where we are anyway.

It could be that the houses that are left in Glenheron are not shifting due to garden aspect. They are all North facing.

We have been down 3 times at this stage and it seems like a lovely area.

I also spoke with a resident and he felt that a lot of the “social housing” talk came from one resident in particular, which was then blown out of proportion. One of the examples he gave was that kids did a nick nock on this particular residents door and the guards were called.

For anyone wondering, Farrankelly and Churchlands will have social housing. Don’t think Eastmount does.

they called the guards over a nick nack? Seriously? It can't be that long since they've been kids.

That’s what I’m told.

A few minor burglaries also as in tools, bikes etc but that can happen anywhere and obviously isn’t related to social housing.

Unfortunately the council seem not to favor the open building of council estates but rather the back door approach of buying houses in new or established estates e.g. Glenheron and Charlesland.

I would be interested to hear your views on why lovely 3 bed semis not near the school or main road in Glenheron are not selling.
Nice dodge, I see my questions remain unanswered.

For clarity my questions were:
what should society do with these people in your opinion??? Where should they live in your opinion?

To date I have no issues with anyone in my estate. Hopefully it stays that way. So yes I’m quite content.

Social housing is unlikely to be the reason Glenheron isn't selling those few houses. All the other developments in Greystones that have it are selling no bother.

Not really sure why Blandpebbles is being so secretive, they posted a few weeks ago they bought a house in Waverly.

And I am mysterious
Seagreen and Churchlands for example.

Waverly has a large field behind it, owned by Cairn Homes, zoned for residential development, and that will definitely have social housing in it if it goes ahead.

The Cairn homes area is a separate estate which will which will border the top row of houses in Waverly but be separate by estate walls i.e. not in Waverly.
Yes, and across the road the houses had no problem selling.

People have booked houses in Churchlands knowing there is social housing going in there, exact same as they did in Seagreen.

It may be a "separate" estate, but I am pretty sure that Waverly has no mgmt fees so will be handed over to Wicklow CoCo when it's done, so there is nothing to stop the entrance to this new estate being within Waverly.

Yes they do. The social houses are literally joined on to houses that are not social houses.

In fact, in Seagreen, the houses in the same cul-de-sacs as the social houses were among the very first to sell.

I'm not dismissing your concern, I just don't see it as as big a deal and nor do others and I don't believe it's the reason Glenheron has those houses left. These social gaffs don't mean you're getting a family on the dole in beside you. These will be working families with lower incomes.

It might be an idea to have respect for other people too, including those that live in social housing.

This sort of statement shows a lack of respect: “Well if by negative you mean not willing to shell out 450k or more for somewhere that is possibly problematic then guilty.

Honestly, why would i choose to live in a potentially troublesome environment?”.

In the real world “potentially troublesome environments” are not confined to social housing.
