The list of developments in which households are eligible for the waiver in 2012 is set out under the Local Government (Household Charge) Regulations 2012. The following developments in Clongriffin, Dublin 13, are included in this list:

Belmayne Blocks P5 and P7

Belmayne Block P20

Belmayne Phase 3

Belmayne Phase 4

Clongriffin Main Street Planning Reference 02/0132

Marrsfield, Clongriffin, Planning Reference 05/3195

A revised list of estates will be prescribed for 2013 after which time the waiver for unfinished housing developments will end. Throughout this period it is anticipated that the numbers of categories 3 and 4 developments will decrease significantly as my Department continues to work with local authorities and other stakeholders to resolve outstanding issues, including through the Public Safety Initiative.
