Yore welcomes support for her motion on pilot housing scheme solution for Louth
Local Independent Councillor Maeve Yore has welcomed cross party and non-party support for her County Motion on a pilot housing scheme solution for Louth.
Her motion states: “That Louth County Council write to housing Minister Eoghan Murphy proposing a pilot scheme for Louth between Credit Union Development Association (CUDA)/O’Cualann Co-operative Housing Association/Louth Co Council to build affordable/social housing on Louth County Council’s land banks and recoup to Louth Co Council the costs of the land incurred”.
Councillor Yore said that O’Cualann Co-Operative Housing have a proven track record in building fully integrated sustainable communities at affordable prices and CUDA have been in negotiations with the Government over the last four years to utilise and offer credit union monies to local authorities for cheaper and more affordable solutions on housing.
She said that it is way past time that Fine Gael Housing Minister Murphy acts on solutions like the above motion offered and desists from trying to blame the Local Authorities for the current housing crisis.
She said: “Louth has lead the way nationally on CPO’s and this motion gives Louth the opportunity to lead the way nationally on housing solutions.”
