A Roscommon TD has called on the Government to fully re-open Irish building sites and to end restrictions on people having to view houses via video links.
Commenting on the Governments Land Development Agency Bill (LDA), Independent Deputy Michael Fitzmaurice says “Let’s get building fully restarted on March 5th. We need houses, and we need infrastructure and construction has been compliant with all the coronavirus rules."
Deputy Fitzmaurice says we need to take the rebuilding of Ireland by the scruff of the neck and to end the scenario where people have to view new homes by video-link.
He has also warned that there is a need for real change in how we approached housing and in particular warned that it was time to take housing away from the Department and councils.
