Serviced Site Development - Survey

Closed19 Dec, 2022, 11:24am - 10 Mar, 2023, 6:24pm

Laois County Council is actively considering the development of serviced sites over the coming years at a number of locations.

The Croí Cónaithe (Towns) Fund launched in September 2022 by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, to be delivered by local authorities, aims to provide new choices for people to live in towns and villages in Ireland and will see local authorities make available serviced sites at reduced cost to support self-build home ownership.

Further information is available on this scheme at

In the first instance, eligibility will be determined by criteria as set out under The Croí Cónaithe (Towns) Fund.  

In advance of finalising its plans, the Council wishes to establish that there are sufficient levels of interest. If you consider that you qualify and are interested in declaring an interest provisionally at this point, you are invited to complete this online assessment, subject to the important information below and your acceptance of the terms in it.

This information is sought by the Housing Department of Laois County Council and retained in pursuance of the functions of Laois County Council as a Housing Authority.
