Donegal County Council has been urged to speed up the introduction of Mica support hubs across the county.
Support clinics were first proposed back in February for homeowners applying to the redress scheme, but any such clinics have yet to be staffed.
Cllr Gary Doherty has called on the council to open clinics in each municipal district immediately.
Cllr Doherty said that people are “crying out for the facility to be up and running” and they “desperately need to drop into a clinic for advice”.
Cllr Doherty said he could see no reasons for the delay.
“These are life-changing decisions people are making and I think it’s a small ask on the local authority to be there for people,” he added.
In response, the council said it sought approval and funding for the appointment of facilitators who would support affected homeowners through the Donegal Local Development Company (DLDC) and Inishowen Development Partnership (IDP). The application was subject to a number of queries being addressed and further information provided. The council said the necessary information has been provided and it anticipates that the posts will be approved by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage once the further information is responded to, “and this will be addressed shortly.”
