APPLICATIONS are now open for new homes at Woodfield Manor in Newcastle West as Limerick City and County Council launches a second phase of the development as part of its Incremental Purchase Scheme.

Encouraging people to apply for homes in the first phase of the development, Fianna Fáil TD and Minister of State Niall Collins said, “It’s great to see Limerick City and County Council launch the Incremental Purchase Scheme again providing starter new build homes at a discounted price.

“The objective of the  scheme is to give working households approved for social housing or households who are already tenants of the housing authority, an approved housing body, HAP or RAS an opportunity to own a new build home, if their income supports it, at a discounted price and strengthen mixed-tenure in communities,” he explained.

Three-bedroom terraced and semi-detached new build homes are now available as part of the first phase of the Woodfield Manor development. Prices range from €96,502 to €157,728, depending on property type and income band.
