Donegal County Council is getting over €1.5m for Unfinished Housing Developments.

It is getting government funding of €851,101 and this will in turn leverage additional private investment of €680,288, resulting in a total investment in these Unfinished Estates of €1,531,389. 

These funds will be targeted to principally address infrastructural deficiencies within the developments such as roads and footpaths, water and sewer services, public lighting and amenity or open space areas, which will provide for the improvement of conditions for residents. 

All works funded under this initiative must be fully completed and all monies drawn down from the Department before the end of 2014. Details of the approvals are as follows.
