Cllr Paul Mulville (SD for Rush-Lusk LEA) has raised serious concerns regarding the lack of transparency and fairness around the allocation of the new Túath Housing Association Cost Rental homes at Cobbe Court above (Castlerock development at Dunrovin),

“I am very glad for those who have secured a place here, and wish them they very best in their new homes,” said Cllr Mulville.

“However, there was zero public notification in the local area, nothing even on Túath housing social media that I can see, which could have given public notice to people in the locality so they had a chance to put their names forward. All we have is a press statement from the Minister last October, and a notice now on Túath’s website to say the applications are closed.”

Cobbe Court entails five one-bed apartments and nine two-bed apartments finished to the highest standard located just a few minutes from Donabate. Rents €1,195 for one bed units and €1,495 for two bed units appplied.

Cllr Mulville said he felt the allocation process was disconcerting and did not bode well for the further roll out of cost rental housing,

“I have sought an explanation from Túath and Fingal County Council. We need to know what the process was and who was told. From now on, we must have fairness and transparency in the allocation of any more publically funded cost rental housing such as this.”
