COVID-19: Work to get underway again on ‘essential’ Waterford housing developments
Work is set to recommence on the sites of two Waterford housing developments in spite of the Covid-19 restrictions.
It comes after the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government deemed certain social housing projects as “essential” projects within the meaning of the Covid-19 health regulations.
In Waterford, certain projects have been identified as meeting the criteria and these sites will re-commence construction activity immediately.
These sites are Knight’s Grange, Lacken, Waterford City (S & K Carey Construction) and Na Fearnóga, Ballinroad, Dungarvan, (Nevin Construction).
Additional sites are also expected to recommence in the near future.
A spokesperson for Waterford City and County Council said: “In each case the contractor employed by the local authority will undertake the works in accordance with HSE and Government COVID-19-related public health guidelines and recommendations.
“In addition, Waterford Council continues with limited maintenance works to their own properties and also with the return to use of void/vacant properties throughout the city and county.
“Waterford Council would like to thank the public for their co-operation during this time.”
