Morris welcomes €9.57 Million funding for Tipperary County Council to construct 60 homes

I would like to welcome the 9.57 million euros which has been announced to be used for a number of social house construction projects in Tipperary . I am particularly pleased that 1,436,935 euros has been dedicated to constructing 9 social housing units of various sizes in Mulkear View in Newport. Mulkear View has plenty of potential and I commend Tipperary County Council for putting this project forward along with the Town Park Project, which is now one step nearer thanks to this announcement. I want to commend the people of Newport for their patience. I would ask Tipperary County Council to think outside the box when allocating these units, as I feel that young families who are earning just over €35,000 but yet cannot get on our council list, should be thought of otherwise they are condemned to a life of renting.

I would also like to say that I am aware of housing needs right across the Nenagh Municipal area and I feel that where Tipperary County Council owns land we should be putting forward proposals for further funding . For instance Tipperary County Council has recently purchased 40 acres of land for housing at Stereame in Nenagh and I would like some social housing included in the Master plan for the area.             

Yours sincerely Cllr. Séamie Morris M C C  08/02/17
