The grant provides funding for the refurbishment of vacant and derelict homes. One can get a grant of up to 70,000e to turn a derelict house or building into your permanent home or a rental property.
  • This holding benefits from a live planning application to construct a two-storey dwelling on the lands which is due to expire in April 2025. The planning application can be reviewed under ref: 20263-Galway Local Authority Planning Portal.  This provides a positive planning history for the new purchasers.
