FINGAL’S housing list is likely to be cut by 23% following an €81m investment, under which 1,376 social housing units will be delivered by the local authority by the end of 2017.
The funding, being made available by the Department of Environment, along with details of the new Build, Buying and Leasing Programme, has been confirmed by Environment Minister Alan Kelly.
The scheme involves €1.5bn being invested nationwide. Fingal will have the option of both building and acquiring vacant units.
Deputy Brendan Ryan (Lab) welcomed the funding, confirming that 77 units would be delivered at Racecourse Commons, Lusk, as a result.
He said: “Details of further projects which will also now go ahead will be issued in a few weeks.”
