Voids Stimulus Programme Update


At a recent South Dublin County Council meeting local Councillor Charlie O’Connor asked the following question “To ask the Chief Executive for an update in relation to the Voids Stimulus Programme which was the subject of significant funding from the Department of Housing, Planning & Local Government; will he give details in respect of each electoral areas?” 

The reply detailed the following “Final claims have now been submitted to the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage (DHLGH) by this Council in respect of the Government’s July 2020 Voids Stimulus Programme in the total sum of €2,416,386 in respect of 219 vacant homes that have been refurbished and are allocated. These properties are located by electoral area as follows: Clondalkin 25, Palmerstown/ Fonthill 49, Lucan 11, Tallaght South 98, Tallaght Central 22, Rathfarnham / Templeogue 10 and Firhouse / Bohernabreena 4. Twenty-one additional properties provisionally included in the July Stimulus Voids programme approval that are not in the final claim are being covered through alternative funding mechanisms (e.g. 11 units of Traveller accommodation) or could not be completed/allocated within the specified deadline (18 homes for which it was not possible to procure and/or complete the works during the period required). The July Stimulus voids funding supplements additional claims due in the sum of approximately €413k for refurbishment works to other vacant properties in the County this year.”
