Councillor wants builders to take over ghost estates

A County Councillor has called for changes to the County Development Plan which would encourage builders applying for multiple developments to instead be encouraged to take over ghost estates

The National Development Housing Survey, which was published recently, found that there were 133 ghost estates in Donegal.

Councillor Jimmy Harte says that the CDP should be changed so that in the case of a builder keen on developing properties,  the council would only approve developments that will complete ghost estates.
