Lack of suitable family accommodation in Leitrim – a major challenge for Leitrim Council.

The lack of suitable family accommodation in the north Leitrim area continues to be of the main challenges facing Leitrim County Council.

That’s according to Manorhamilton municipal district, Fine Gael Councillor Frank Dolan.

The local authority recently sought proposals from Developers/Contractors to provide new, turn-key social housing in various locations throughout the County, however the locations where the housing were sought did not include any in north Leitrim.

Councillor Dolan says the lack of suitable accommodation in the north of the county is a major problem for families that are in need of social housing and want to remain in north Leitrim.
