COMMUNITIES Minister Carál Ní Chuilín has confirmed on the floor of the Stormont Assembly that a Triangle Housing Association scheme for nine new houses in Armoy cannot proceed without new sewerage infrastructure being added.

 Minister Ní Chuilín was responding to a question from North Antrim MLA Jim Allister in relation to the five villages of Armoy, Bushmills, Dervock, Mosside and Stranocum.
