Limerick City and County Council has added properties in Abbeyfeale, Askeaton and Bruff to the list of properties to be compulsory purchased.
The following properties are now being CPO’ed:
These latest Compulsory Purchase Orders come a week after another tranche of orders were published for properties in Rathkeale, which included an unfinished housing estate in Ballywilliam.
This work is part of the €2.5 million in funding from the Rural Regeneration & Development Fund (RRDF) to tackle dereliction in the five Limerick towns of Rathkeale, Abbeyfeale, Bruff, Askeaton and Ardagh. This is being viewed as a pilot project nationally and was the largest sum awarded to any project in the funding call.
Tackling dereliction will allow our towns and villages to be renewed and much needed affordable homes for people.
More than 100 properties have been CPO’ed by Limerick City and County Council in the past two years.
