Latest Laois News: Funding for Laois County Council to refurbish and re-let 50 houses in 2021
€745,000 to refurbish and re-let 50 Council Houses in Laois in 2021 – Fleming
Sean Fleming TD Minister of State at the Department of Finance has welcomed the major announcement of funding by the Department of Housing to enable Laois County Council refurbish and re-let 50 houses this year.
“This is great news as 50 families can now receive houses from the Council before the end of the year.”
“Under the scheme the Department will cover the cost of up to €11,000 for 45 properties for refurbishment. For houses that require significant investment to bring them back into use the Government will provide €50,000 for each of the five houses that have been identified by the Council.”
“I look forward to Laois County Council proceeding with this work as soon as possible to ensure all of these 50 families are in their new homes over the coming months.”
“Finally, this is really good news for local builders and tradespersons who can get good local work under this scheme. This will ensure this money will be spent locally and I ask the Council to do everything possible to employ local people to work on these house refurbishments.”
