Age-friendly living in iconic Waterford city building

Waterford City and County Council is delighted to announce that works are nearing completion on the St. Joseph’s House Housing Development in Waterford City centre.

Located on a landmark site on Manor Hill, St. Joseph’s House contains 71 dwellings.  The former convent consists of 50 units located (a mix of one- and two-bedroom dwellings) within the main building, while 21 units are located in the various out-building clusters on the site.  The former chapel on the site has been repurposed as a community space for multiple uses by tenants.

Waterford City and County Council is seeking expressions of interest for those interested in living in this remarkable development.

Paul Johnston, Senior Engineer, Waterford City and County Council said,

“This development is unique.  While the dwellings themselves are bright, spacious and contemporary, the setting of Manor Hill is steeped in history and woven into Waterford’s fabric.

“All of the dwellings are modern, bright and energy efficient, are fully furnished and offer superb views of the city scape from the elevated site on Manor Hill. We have worked closely with Age Friendly Ireland to ensure the development will provide an exceptional and inclusive experience, compatible with age friendly principles.

“The proximity to the city centre, amenities and bus routes makes them ideal for older residents.  The Council is interested in hearing from those who are 55 years and over and are approved for a transfer on rightsizing grounds.”

The units are contained within a number of buildings in the St. Joseph’s development, the Convent Building, the Courtyard Building, the Presbytery and School Building.  The Convent Building is serviced by two lifts and most units within the development are single storey.

Since 2016, Waterford Council has been actively seeking to reduce the level of vacant homes across Waterford City and County. The Council’s Vacant Homes Team works to encourage vacant property owners to allow their properties to be used for social housing through the Repair and Leasing Scheme and the Buy and Renew Scheme.  The Repair and Lease Scheme has been particularly successful in delivering 1-bed and 2-bed units in urban areas where there is a proportionately larger demand for this type of accommodation.

St. Joseph’s House is being delivered under Housing for All – A New Housing Plan for Ireland, a Repair and Lease Scheme promoted by Waterford City and County Council, and funded by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage.

To register an expression of interest in St. Joseph’s House, Manor Hill visit https://bit.ly/EOI-StJosephs or to find out more information about the development, call Waterford City and County Council Housing Section on 0818 10 20 20.

Ciste Chroí Cónaithe (Bailte) leathnaithe chuig cathracha agus ceantair thuaithe

Beidh deontas suas go dtí €30,000 ar a mhéad ar fáil chun réadmhaoine folmha a athchóiriú le cónaí iontu mar an phríomháit chónaithe phríobháideach, lena n-áirítear áit chónaithe a dhéanamh as réadmhaoin nach raibh in úsáid roimhe seo mar áit chónaithe. Beidh seo faoi réir uasteorainneacha do na cineálacha oibre atá sonraithe thíos ag féachaint do mheasúnú costais réasúnta a bheith déanta ag an údarás áitiúil. Tá costas CBL na hoibre san áireamh sa deontas.

Nuair a mheastar go sáróidh na costais athchóirithe an gnáthdheontas suas le €30,000, beidh suim deontais bhreise suas le €20,000 ar a mhéad ar fáil nuair a bheidh sé deimhnithe ag an iarratasóir go bhfuil an réadmhaoin folamh (i.e. contúirteach agus dainséarach ó thaobh struchtúir de) agus dá réir is suas le €50,000 ar a mhéad an deontas a bheidh ar fáil do réadmhaoin thréigthe. I gcás deontas breise maidir le réadmhaoin thréigthe, beidh tuairisc neamhspleách arna hullmhú ag gairmí atá cáilithe go cuí (e.g. suirbhéir cainníochta, innealtóir agus mar sin de) ag teastáil le cur ar aghaidh in éineacht leis an iarratas ina ndeimhneofar go bhfuil an réadmhaoin tréigthe (i.e. contúirteach agus dainséarach ó thaobh struchtúir de).

Beidh ar dhaoine atá ag cur isteach ar an deontas a dheimhniú ar an bhfoirm iarratais cibé an ag déanamh iarratais ar an deontas athchóirithe réadmhaoine foilmhe agus sin amháin atá siad nó an ag déanamh iarratais ar an deontas athchóirithe réadmhaoine foilmhe lena n-áirítear an deontas breise réadmhaoine foilmhe atá siad.

Ní mór réadmhaoine a bheidh le breithniú chun a áireamh a bheith folamh le dhá bhliain nó níos faide agus gur roimh 1993 a tógadh iad. Chun críocha na scéime seo, meastar réadmhaoin a bheith folamh más rud é go bhfuil sí folamh agus gan chónaí le tréimhse dhá bhliain nó níos faide. Is féidir deimhniú folúis a bhailíochtú agus a dhearbhú trí úsáid a bhaint as, mar shampla, Billí Fóntais a chuideoidh tréimhsí folúis a dhéanamh amach (e.g. patrúin úsáide nó dícheangal) nó cruthúnais eile den chineál sin a bheadh ar fáil a shásódh an t-údarás áitiúil. Ní mór deimhniú folúis a bheith bailíochtaithe agus dearbhaithe ag an údarás áitiúil sula gceadaítear deontas.

D’fhéadfadh Deontas faoi Scéim Tí Fuinnimh Níos Fearr ón SEAI a bheith ar fáil in éineacht leis an deontas seo. Ní chlúdófar dá réir obair a bheidh clúdaithe ag Scéim Tí Fuinnimh Níos Fearr ón SEAI. Ní mór don údarás áitiúil a dheimhniú dó féin nach bhfuil éileamh déanta faoi aon dheontas eile i leith na hoibre beartaithe.

Beidh cruthúnas ar fholús agus úinéireacht ag teastáil chun tacú leis an íocaíocht deontais. I dtéarmaí úinéireachta, is faoin iarratasóir a bheidh sé úinéireacht a dheimhniú leis an údarás áitiúil.

Féadfaidh údarás áitiúil ceadú i bprionsabal a thabhairt d’iarratas deontais sa chás go bhfuil an t-iarratasóir ábalta fianaise ar idirphlé gníomhach atá ar bun i dtaobh réadmhaoin a cheannach a chur ar fáil i.e. deimhniú comhaontaithe ón ngníomhaireacht eastáit nó ó úinéir na réadmhaoine nuair a chuireann an t-úinéir cruthúnas dá leithéid ar fáil i dtaobh an réadmhaoin a bheith folamh mar a éilítear faoin scéim thar ceann an iarratasóra. Ní dhéanfar ceadú i bprionsabal den chineál sin a dheimhniú ina cheadú iomlán go dtí go mbeidh úinéireacht aistrithe chuig an iarratasóir agus ní bheidh cead aon airgead a tharraingt anuas go dtí go mbeidh an úinéireacht sin deimhnithe go sásúil ag an údarás áitiúil.

Tá tuilleadh eolais ar fáil in achoimre na scéime, foirm iarratais agus na Ceisteanna a Chuirtear go Minic bainteacha. Déan teagmháil leis an Oifigeach do Réadmhaoin Fholamh i d’údarás áitiúil chun tuilleadh eolais a fháil.

Croí Cónaithe (Towns) Fund extended to cities and rural areas

Croí Cónaithe (Towns) Fund-extended to cities and rural areas

It was announced by the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien T.D. that the Vacant Property Refurbishment Grant was extended to eligible vacant properties in both cities and rural areas to ensure the existing housing stock is being used to the fullest extent possible.

A grant of up to a maximum of €30,000 is  available for the refurbishment of vacant properties for occupation as a principal private residence, including the conversion of a property which has not been used as residential heretofore. This is  subject to upper limits for the types of work specified below having regard to a reasonable cost assessment by the local authority.

All queries in relation to the scheme to be sent to: vacanthomes@waterfordcouncil.ie

Where the refurbishment costs are expected to exceed the standard grant of up to €30,000, a maximum top-up grant amount of up to €20,000 will be available where the property is confirmed by the applicant to be derelict (i.e. structurally unsound and dangerous) bringing the total grant available for a derelict property up to a maximum of €50,000. In the case of a top-up grant in respect of a derelict property, an independent report prepared by an appropriately qualified professional (e.g. quantity surveyor, engineer etc.) is required to be submitted along with the application confirming that the property is derelict (i.e. structurally unsound and dangerous).

Those applying for the grant will be required to indicate on the application form to confirm if they are applying for the vacant property refurbishment grant alone or the vacant property refurbishment grant including the derelict property top-up grant.

Properties considered for inclusion must be vacant for two years or more and built before 1993. For the purposes of this scheme, a property is deemed to be vacant if it has been vacant and unoccupied for a period of two years or more. Confirmation of vacancy can be validated and verified by the use of, for example, Utility Bills which can help determine vacancy periods (e.g. pattern of usage or disconnection) or such other proofs as are available to the satisfaction of the local authority. Confirmation of vacancy must be validated and verified by the local authority prior to grant approval.

An SEAI Better Energy Home Scheme Grant may be available in combination with this grant. Works covered by SEAI Better Energy Homes Scheme will therefore not be covered. The local authority must satisfy themselves that proposed works are not claimed for under any other grant.

Proof of both vacancy and ownership will be required to support the grant payment. In terms of ownership, it is a matter for the applicant to confirm ownership with the local authority.
