Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government

Implementing Housing for All: Discussion (Resumed)

Ms Jackie Maguire:

I will make one comment on vacancy, commercial rates and 100% relief in cases of vacancy. If the legislation could be changed to allow us to do that in either a street-specific or value-specific way, it would be much more operable. It must be done at municipal district or county level. There are restrictions due to the legislation. If the legislation could be made more specific, it would generate more of a stick approach.
