Nama is refusing to save a deal to provide 900 social and affordable homes in one of the biggest housing sites in Dublin.

The 34 hectare Poolbeg West site, which includes the former Irish Glass bottle factory, is currently due to have 3,500 homes built there.

But the Nama-appointed receiver has walked away from a deal agreed between councillors and the Department of Housing to increase the number of social and affordable homes on the site from 350 to 900.
