A Galway based Minister says a new Housing Delivery Taskforce for the county, will help the local authorities in Galway to deliver housing more quickly and consistently.

The taskforce has been established by the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government Eoghan Murphy and will be chaired by Ms Geraldine Tallon, former Department Secretary General, who currently chairs the Cork Housing Delivery Taskforce.

The membership of the taskforce will consist of the Chief Executives of Galway City and County Councils, the Directors of Housing and housing department staff at the councils, senior officials at the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government, as well as a representative of the Approved Housing Body sector.

Minister Kyne says despite multi-million investment in housing in a number of city and county locations in Galway in recent years, it is clear the progress on the delivery of new housing in Galway is too slow.
