The Croí Cónaithe Towns Fund now makes serviced sites available at a discounted rate to people looking to build their home in a rural town or village in ROI.
Local authorities are making serviced sites, i.e. sites with the necessary infrastructure such as electricity, water and wastewater, available in towns and villages to people who want to move to a rural area. The site must be used to self-build their home to live in.
The Ready to Build scheme (Serviced Sites for New Homes) subsidises the cost of buying a site by servicing it for free. The maximum discount off the sale price is €30,000.
The government previously said the plan would make 2,000 sites available by 2025.
