Leitrim councillor shocked by decision to increase concrete levy

Surprise, shock and disappointment are just some of the words being used when it comes to the reaction to the move from the government to increase the Concrete Levy.


Many have expressed surprise that such a move would have been made during a housing crisis with concern that the extra costs will lead to increased costs for developers and new home owners.


Leitrim Councillor Padraig Fallon is warning that the move will negatively impact the construction at time when real progress needs to be made.


Speaking to Ocean FM news Cllr Fallon says the move will lead to an increase in house prices.
