first_imgCllr Gary DohertySinn Féin Councillor Gary Doherty has said that the number of vacant council housing units in Donegal provides further evidence that the housing crisis has reached emergency levels in the county.Cllr Doherty was responding to reports that there are now 159 vacant council units in Donegal while there are almost 3,000 people on housing waiting lists.He said: “The buck for the housing crisis stops with this government. The situation is at emergency levels. There are now 159 vacant council units Donegal and this shows that Fine Gael and the Labour Party are not taking this crisis seriously. “Donegal County Council needs funding from central government to get these units back into circulation. We have 2,800 people languishing on waiting lists in this county. Many families would be gladly take one of these units. It is now likely that these units will remain idle throughout the winter months. This is unacceptable.“The approach of this government has been to stick its head in the sand and even deny the scale of the crisis even when we can all see the enormity of the housing & homelessness on our streets and in our communities.“In addition, we have seen the the funding for the refurbishment of our housing stock reduced by almost €1.8 million from 2014 levels. That is completely unacceptable. This Government needs to step up to the plate to alleviate this crisis that is gripping the country.”  COUNCIL NEEDS CASH FOR 159 VACANT HOUSES IN COUNTY – DOHERTY was last modified: September 28th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
