272 houses across Dublin City will now be refurbished so that families can move into them and call those buildings home as a result of Government Stimulus funding, according to Fine Gael Councillor, Ray McAdam.
Councillor McAdam said that:
as part of the July Stimulus Programme, Fine Gael in Government is making over €40 million available for the refurbishment of voids (vacant houses), the largest single amount ever announced under the voids programme. Nationally 2,398 applications from Local Authorities across Ireland have been approved at a cost of €39.8 million, with further applications anticipated.
The Fine Gael Councillor confirmed that Dublin City Council will receive in excess of €4m to fund the refurbishment of more than 270 vacant houses.
This funding is welcome and as the Fine Gael Leader on Dublin City Council I will be seeking assurances from the Chief Executive that the Council will ensure these works are completed before years’ end and that these new homes will be allocated to those on our housing lists” concluded McAdam.
