Corrigan Welcomes Funding For Essential Works In Saltown

Cllr Edel CorriganCouncillor Edel Corrigan has today welcomed the news that funding has been approved to complete essential works in Saltown, Dundalk.

Speaking today, the Sinn Féin councillor said “Louth County Council applied for this funding in February under the Unfinished Housing Development Special Resolution Fund and I am delighted that it has been approved. We should see parts of the Estate resurfaced and essential works carried out.”

“These one-time dream homes that in the past were in high demand have now turned into victims of the building boom bust where residents have had to suffer due to poor planning and development and sections of the unfinished phases of the development.”

Edel Corrigan acknowledged that “the residents have worked hard together to improve the area and to have the bonds released to have the development finished. Hopefully this funding will go some way to achieving that. Works should be completed by the end of November.”

The Dundalk/Carlingford Councillor said “everyone has the right to live in a decent, clean and peaceful environment. These people have been left in a building site so I am delighted that this money is coming and warmly welcome it.”
