Twenty houses in the Naas-Sallins area, owned by Kildare County Council require work to be done before being let to tenants, a Naas Municipal District meeting heard. Another one in Ballymore Eustace also needs work, the meeting was told.
Cllr Evie Sammon sought information about the number of vacant houses and the reason why these have not been allocated.
“There are houses vacant for two or three years because they have not been refurbished. We need to see the progress on that and to see how the work can be funded,” said Cllr Sammon.
Overall 2% of KCC’s housing stock - which exceeds 5,000 properties - is vacant.
