€782,311 in funding for Cork County Council to take charge of 614 housing units

€782,311 has been provisionally approved for Cork to take 15 housing developments in charge.

The Minister for Housing, Simon Coveney TD, has confirmed to me that €782,311 has been provisionally approved for Cork County Council to take 15 housing developments in charge. 614 housing units will be taken in charge by the Council thanks to this funding.

The housing developments to come under the remit of Cork County Council thanks to this initiative include

  • The Orchard, Fairy Hill, Monkstown
  • Daneswood, Douglas.

This is really great news for housing estates and developments right across the county, that have been left unfinished or in need of further work by developers. Now that these developments will be under the remit of Cork County Council this work can finally be done, and families can expect to live in high quality developments that are properly serviced.

“This funding allocation from Government, also enables Cork County Council to raise a further €277,197 through bonds and other sources, in order to help finance this initiative.

Minister Coveney has said that this initiative should be seen in the context of the Government’s forthcoming Action Plan for Housing. Funding provided through Local Authorities will support the provision of new infrastructure to support the development of high quality homes for all.
