Deputy Michelle Mulherin asked the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government the reason the unfinished housing estate waiver does not apply to houses in an estate (details supplied) in County Mayo in view of the incomplete and inadequate works and services outstanding; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [13977/12]
Minister of State at the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government (Deputy Jan O’Sullivan): As part of the process of preparing the National Housing Development Survey 2011, published by my Department in October 2011, local authorities provided details of all unfinished housing developments in their areas. Unfinished housing developments were divided into four categories as follows:
This categorisation formed the basis for the list of those unfinished developments eligible for a waiver on the annual household charge. Only households in developments in categories three and four are eligible for the waiver from payment of the household charge. This list of developments in which households are eligible for the waiver in 2012 is set out under the Local Government (Household Charge) Regulations 2012.
