Government announces intention to introduce 2nd National Development Plan

A senior official with Kerry County Council hopes the next National Development Plan will provide adequate funding to address existing shortfalls in the provision of water and sewerage. Tom Curran says the problem is preventing the development of housing schemes in certain parts of the county. The Government has announced its intention to introduce a second National Development Plan from 2007 to 2013 and Mr Curran says the County Council is seeking 145million euro over the coming years.
