Waterford City and County Council welcomes allocation of €4.7m LIHAF Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government funding.

Waterford City and County Council is working closely with the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government to secure the allocation of the funding which is targeted at developing enabling works in two areas of Waterford City. The proposed works include a distributor road at Kilbarry which will create a potential for 450 new housing units by 2021 and an access road at Gracedieu with a potential to access 200 new housing units by 2021. In the longer term, the proposed infrastructural investments would generate the potential for 3,700 housing units.

Michael Walsh CE of Waterford City and County Council says “The allocation of €4.7 million of LIHAF funding presents an opportunity for Waterford to ensure that the necessary infrastructure will be put in place to progress essential housing development at a time when demand is increasing”.
