‘Peo­ple have as much chance of get­ting a house as they have of win­ning the lotto!’

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

LO­CAL coun­cil­lor Frank God­frey has said peo­ple on the coun­cil hous­ing list have as much chance of get­ting a house as they do of ‘win­ning the lotto’.

Ad­dress­ing last week’s mu­nic­i­pal district meet­ing, he said there was no def­i­nite dates for the start of pro­posed build­ing projects and some peo­ple would be home­less but for their fam­i­lies.

‘We spent €20m on lands on the Bal­ly­makenny Road and there’s no sign of a start on that,’ he said.

He did say that houses were be­ing built at Bothar Brugha but it needed ‘more ac­tion and less talk.’

Ear­lier, Cllr Tommy Byrne had wel­comed the fact that Tuath Hous­ing was go­ing to fin­ish Lis­cor­rie.

He urged that the es­tate be fin­ished prop­erly now. The new ten­ants will be housed via Choice based let­ting.
