Leitrim County Council is to request an urgent meeting with the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government regarding the re-opening of the Local Improvement Scheme.

Cllr Paddy O’Rourke made the proposal at the recent Council meeting noting “there are over 200 roadways listed on the waiting list with no works having been done since 2010.

“Given the improved state of national funds we have to offer some hope to the many families using these roadways to their homes which, because of their category, are not even eligible to have patching work carried out,” he said.
