Cllr Sullivan suggested that Wexford County Council call on the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage to extend the Defective Concrete Blocks Redress Scheme nationwide with immediate effect to automatically include all counties in Ireland as the 5% levy on concrete blocks, pouring concrete and other concrete products will apply nationwide.

“Furthermore, to include redress for houses whether complete or under the course of construction for concrete affected by Mica, Pyrite, Pyrrhotite, Alkall Silica Reaction or any other inappropriate aggregates or materials,” said Cllr Sullivan.

Cllr Sullivan’s motion was seconded by Cllr Michael Whelan, there was full support from the members, and the motion will now be forwarded to the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage for consideration.
