Deputy Seán Canney asked the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage if funding allocated under the developer-provided infrastructure scheme has been returned unspent to his Department due to the fact that Irish Water has failed to provide the necessary connections to allow the sewerage to be connected to two housing estates (details supplied) in County Galway; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Written answers (Question to Housing)

The two estates mentioned in the details supplied were allocated funding last year under my Department’s Multi-annual Developer Provided Water Services Infrastructure Resolution Programme 2019-2021.

It is now a matter for Galway County Council to plan the advancement of the most appropriate and sustainable solution to enable the estates to be taken in charge. My Department will continue to engage with the local authority on the matter.
