Kerry TD John Brassil has said that Kerry County Council must turnaround vacant houses sooner.
It has been reported that it takes 42 weeks to renovate a council house, and get it back into the housing stock.
The Fianna Fáil TD says Dublin City Council can do it in 20 weeks, and in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, they can do it in 12 weeks.
He continued by saying that Kerry County Council must explain why it’s taking over twice as long to renovate a house in Kerry as it does in Dublin.”
Brassil has called on the Director of Housing Services to address these delays.
