Taoiseach confirms that mica compensation will be completed by end of September

The Taoiseach says talks on the mica compensation scheme will be finished by the end of the month.


Homeowners are meeting department officials today, with further talks with Housing Minister Darragh O’Brien in the coming days.


Campaigners want a 100% redress scheme for those impacted by the faulty building blocks.


Meanwhile, a Donegal TD is calling for local authorities to be provided with the power to oversee the planning, acquiring, registration, inspection, and certification process for builds.


Speaking in the Dáil, Deputy Thomas Pringle reiterated his calls for the Government to provide 100% redress to homeowners affected by mica-affected blocks.


The Independent TD says the ‘Building Control Act’  has allowed for issues such as we currently see in counties such as  Donegal and Mayo.


Deputy Pringle says there is the scope and opportunity to empower local authorities properly to provide new and improved mechanisms to ensure that homeowners are protected.
