Waterford Minister of State John Halligan T.D. has confirmed that 52 vacant local authority homes in Waterford will be returned to productive use this year under a housing investment announced recently.

Waterford City & County Council has been allocated €853,820 under the Vacant Properties (Voids) Programme for 2017 and Minister Halligan said the local authority will be asked to give priority consideration to making the refurbished homes available for letting to homeless families:

“This programme commenced in 2014 to assist in dealing with vacant units and the feedback to date from local authorities has been very positive, in terms of achieving a quick turnaround and re-letting times for the housing units concerned”, Minister Halligan continued.

“Going forward, funding will be linked to local authorities putting in place ongoing maintenance programmes to address the issue of vacant properties. These measures will mean that there will not be a high number of vacant units, and local authorities will continue to be supported in the remediation of any such vacant units that do occur.”

Since its introduction in 2014 the Department’s Vacant Properties (Voids) Programme has provided approximately €85million of funding which has result in over 7,200 properties being return to productive use. A key priority of this scheme is to rehouse homeless families to the fullest extent possible in homes that have been restored to an energy efficient condition.

The Vacant Properties programme applies to both short and long term vacant units nationwide. The energy efficiency works on the Vacant Property Programme has secured ERDF funding as part of the EU Operational Programme 2014-2020 and will see EU co-financing of 50% of eligible public investment under these programmes.

Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
