Donegal County Council said yesterday that the recent announcement by Government of funding for the Mica Redress Scheme in Budget 2020 is a welcomed development.

The local authority has confirmed  in a statement that engagement is ongoing with officials in the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government in relation to the details of the scheme, including enabling regulations, with the objective of concluding this work as soon as possible.

The Council is also making preparations for the work in relation to the administration of the scheme so that when the regulations enabling the opening of applications to the scheme come into effect it will be in a state of readiness to receive and process applications.
