Mountrath Shannon Street

Approval has been granted to construct 20 new homes on Shannon Street in Mountrath.

The news was confirmed by Fianna Fail’s Sean Fleming in a statement.

He said: “The Government has today given approval in principle to Laois County Council for 20 new social houses at Shannon Street, Mountrath.

“The announcement of these new homes is part of the Government’s ambitious Housing for All plan and Laois County Council’s excellent programme for delivering homes in the county.

“These houses will be built by a private builder and they will be purchased by Laois County Council when they are completed under the turnkey method.

“There will be a mix of 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom houses in this development.

“This is good news for County Laois and people with a housing need in the area.

“I look forward to the completion of these homes and families moving into them.

“Hundreds of new houses will be completed in 2023 and 2024 through funding provided by the government to Laois County Council and approved housing bodies in the county.

“The Government is ramping up the supply of houses and I will ensure that much more homes are built in Laois within the next two years.”
