Unfinished Housing Developments

Waterford City & County Council has established an Unfinished Housing Estates Team to assist in the completion of housing developments in Waterford City and County. Its main objective involves the management of the completion and compliance of privately constructed housing developments. The Estate’s Unit’s primary focus is to resolve any immediate public safety issues and then to address all serious defects in the identified unfinished housing developments. There are currently 50 developments in the unfinished housing process each at various stages of completion. The Estate’s Unit has adopted a collaborative approach to the resolution of developments with stakeholders such as NAMA, Financial Institutions, Receivers, Liquidators, Security Providers, Contractors, Developers and most importantly, the residents.

Waterford City & County Council has also applied to the Department of Environment Community & Local Government to secure funding to assist in efforts to carry out remedial actions on selected housing estates. Furthermore, the Council has been successful in receiving funding for one estate under the new national Special Resolution Fund 2014 for Unfinished Housing Developments.
