Limerick council houses have consistent heat sources

Limerick City and County Council Director of Housing Caroline Curley.

ALL dwellings within Limerick City and County Council’s housing stock have a heating source consistent with rental standards.

That was the reply to a question from Fine Gael councillor Sarah Kiely at this month’s Metropolitan District meeting when she asked how many Council houses in the district do not have central heating and what plans will now be put in place to rectify this situation.

Director of Housing Caroline Curley pointed out that there are currently 3,790 local authority dwellings in the Metropolitan area.

The specifics of the heating systems vary given the number of dwellings within the stock, she explained.

“There is no detailed data available with regard to the numbers of each specific types of heating such as open fire, oil, or gas fired boilers,” she added.
