New Tenant Purchase Scheme
Fianna Fàil General Election Candidate Cllr. Siobhàn Ambrose has welcomed the announcement that the new tenant purchase scheme for Local Authority tenants will come into operation on the 1st of January. This new scheme will give tenants the opportunity to apply to the Local Authority to purchase their homes at a discounted rate should they be eligible to do so. The Council will be writing out to tenants over the coming weeks informing them of the new scheme and the conditions attached to the scheme. According to Cllr. Ambrose many tenants have asking when this scheme will be opening again so she has no doubt that there will be a lot of interest from existing tenants. Cllr. Ambrose has also asked the housing section to check with Department to see if there is any way that some of the proceeds from any of these proposed house sales can go towards upgrading our existing tenant housing stock with new windows and doors, electrical and plumbing upgrade works in order to keep them in good condition.
