The Government has agreed that Level 5 (with some amendments) as set out in the Plan for Living with COVID-19 will continue to apply nationally until July 5th 2021. The Government has clearly stated that there is a continued need to minimise the level of mobility and congregation of people in order to reduce all opportunities for transmission of the virus.

Please note that our library buildings have reopened to the public for Browsing Services and Contact & Collect since Monday, May 10th. Please see Library Page.

Consequently, and in line with current public health guidance, the Offices of Offaly County Council are closed for walk-in services to support this reduced mobility policy.

Public access cannot be facilitated during LEVEL 5 restrictions. Therefore, Offaly County Council services will be available by telephone, email, online post and only where absolutely necessary and in exceptional circumstances by appointment. Please read latest information.

REPAIR AND LEASING SCHEME (RLS) LOAN SCHEME FOR REPAIR OF VACANT HOUSES & APARTMENTS IN COUNTY OFFALY.

 

  • Do you own a vacant house or apartment that’s in need of repair?

  • Is lack of funding a problem?

  • Would you lease the property if funding repairs were to be made available to you?

The Repair and Leasing Scheme (RLS) may be for you

The basis of the scheme is that repair and improvement works to suitable vacant properties are funded to bring them up to the standards for rented accommodation.
