Longford council gets 50 applications for choice based letting scheme

Over 50 application were received by Longford County Council its first ever choice based letting scheme.

In October, the council revealed that three homes would be available for people who wished to take up the offer of social housing from the council.

There was huge interest registered in three homes, at 79 Springlawn, Longford; 17 McHugh Park, Kenagh; and 12 Currabaun, Drumlish and it’s hoped that the council may be able to help some of the new tenants turn the key before Christmas.


Independent Longford Councillor Gerry Warnock is pleased that the scheme appears to have been such a success.
