Owners of vacant letting properties in Boyle could be in line to have repair work paid up front in a new scheme recently announced.
Other towns in the county covered under the scheme includes Roscommon, Castlerea, Ballaghaderreen & Strokestown.
Roscommon County Council is now inviting applications from owners of vacant property under a new scheme called the Vacant Housing Repair and Leasing Scheme which is a key component of the Rebuilding Ireland Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness.
If a property requires repairs to bring it up to the Standards for Letting, Roscommon County Council or an Approved Housing Body will pay for this repair work up-front in return for the property being made available for social housing through a lease for a period of at least 10 years.
Roscommon County Council is interested in such properties in its high demand areas such as Monksland and the towns of Roscommon, Castlerea, Boyle, Ballaghaderreen & Strokestown.
There are a number of requirements in relation to the Scheme.
