Vol. 313 No. 2

Written Answers. - Rating Concession.


asked the Minister for the Environment the legislation, if any, which would permit a local authority to offer rating concessions with a view to inducing industry or other type of developments into city areas.

The only rating concessions which are specifically designed for industrial premises and which would seem applicable to certain urban areas are those provided by section 9 of the Undeveloped Areas Act, 1952, as amended, and section 3 of the Industrial Development Act, 1972. These allow local authorities, at their discretion, to grant a two-thirds remission of rates for ten years to new industrial premises provided in designated areas—within the meaning of the Industrial Development Acts—by, or by means of a grant from, the Industrial Development Authority.
