Revised housing targets for Mayo county town revealed

A total 280 social and affordable homes planned for delivery before 2026 in the Castlebar Municipal District

They include a new scheme at Lower Charles Street in the town centre (pictured), Lois Na Circe at Milebush, Ellison Street, Lawn Road and Rathbawn.

There are also plans for Ballyvary and Carnacon.

Elected members attended workshop at which they were presented with an ambitious plan for delivery over the next two to three years.

Councillor Donna Sheridan said while she welcomed this plan, she is disappointed that only 15 of these homes planned are affordable houses.

"I will continue to work to ensure we deliver social housing, affordable housing and the option of serviced sites for the district," she added.
