The Department for Communities (DfC) missed its target for building new social homes in rural areas by more than 50% in the last year, prompting fears countryside communities are being neglected.

Recently, Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey announced that building on 2,403 new social homes had started in the 2020/21 financial year.
