Housing Construction In Midlands More Than Doubles So Far This Year

107 commencement notices have been received so far this year.

Commencement notices for 107 homes in the midlands have been received so far this year.

A notice must be submitted to the local authority when construction is about to start on a building.

Laois County Council received 54 notices for residential properties in the first two months of this year, 33 were received in Offaly, and 20 in Westmeath.

That's more than double on the same period last year, during which just 49 notices were recorded for homes in the midlands.
