Funding for unfinished estates
News that €9 million is to be provided in funding for taking in charge residential estates was welcomed by me on Saturday, July 9th, 2016.
An additional €4.5 million in funding is available to local authorities through bonds and other sources.
‘This funding, which is part of the agreed Programme for Government, is vital to alleviate the issues with unfinished estates. Residents have suffered in silence and following intense negotiations at Government level between the Independent Alliance and Fine Gael, funding is now being made available.
‘I am particularly pleased that County Galway will receive €701,000, which reflects an investment in 34 estates throughout the county. This funding will bring facilities for 1,488 houses up to standard.’
‘The announcement is another example of how this new Partnership Government is taking on the issues and dealing with them in a positive way.’
