PAULA R. GALLAGHER, Director of Services, told members of Sligo Borough Council in relation to Cranmore Regeneration Scheme that in 2012, 226 households, both social and private, availed of energy efficiency schemes.
In the last 15 months, more than 100 Sligo Borough Council houses received replacement windows and doors, while a further 18 vacant properties were re- furbished and re-tenanted.
The demolition of the Doorly Park Masionettes, has been implemented under the Cranmore Regeneration office.
Clr. Declan Bree said that residents in Cranmore who purchased their homes are happy to see council owned homes being provided with windows and doors, however they believe that they are entitled to a share of the regeneration funding that is being invested in the area.
He added: "Taking into consideration that a colossal 17% of funding provided by the Department for the Cranmore Regeneration Project is being spent on administration and salaries, it is unacceptable that residents of Cranmore who purchased their homes are not being provided with an opportunity to avail of funding."
