LACK of water supply is putting the development of a much-needed 70-house scheme in Croom on hold, according to local TD Richard O’Donoghue.
He highlighted the issue during a Dáil debate on the shortage of affordable housing last week when he said that a major housing project in County Limerick was stalled by a problem with water connectivity.
“I am working with a village which has planning for 70 houses, some of which are pre-sold. What is the problem? The problem is that I can deliver 70 houses here but there’s no water, he said.
They will be waiting for another 12 months for water to come to Croom.
I can deliver 70 houses. I am only talking about one village in County Limerick, and this is something which is sadly the same in other locations across my county, and the country,” Deputy O’Donoghue claimed.
