Pyrite resolution applications can be made next week

Helen McEntee TD.

Fine Gael Meath East TD, Helen McEntee, has today (Wednesday) said that the Pyrite Resolution Board (PRB)  will be in a position to accept applications from next week after, it was announced that the Pyrite Remediation Scheme has been published and the Board’s online application system will go live from 26th February 2014.

“It is fantastic news that the PRB will finally be in a position to accept application from next week. The Minister for Environment, Phil Hogan TD, has said that homeowners who have registered an interest on the PRB’s website will be notified when the application system goes live," she said.

"This follows the enactment of legislation which was drafted as a matter of priority before Christmas, following the Government’s decision to provide an initial €10 million in funding to allow remediation works to be carried out on homes affected by pyrite. The Government has also promised that additional funding will be allocated over the next two years from the Capital Stimulus Programme.

“The Pyrite Action Group has been campaigning tirelessly to get to this stage, whereby homeowners affected by pyrite will finally be able to secure funding to bring their homes to a proper standard. This has taken longer than we would have hoped, but I am very pleased that this Government is stepping in where others have failed by providing a fund to allow remediation works to take place."
