Maintenance of City Council’s housing stock


Policy in relation to maintenance of rented Local Authority dwellings is set out in the Statement of Policy on Housing Management. This statement details the respective responsibilities of the City Council and the Tenant in relation to maintenance. For new Tenancies, all repairs are carried out by the City Council prior to letting. The Tenant’s responsibility to maintain the property in good order is included in the Letting Agreement, which is signed at the commencement of a tenancy.

 

When a requirement for repairs arises from neglect or abuse of the property by the Tenant, the Tenant is also responsible. At times, the City Council may carry out such repairs and charge the Tenant as an addition to weekly rent or other appropriate method of payment.

 

The City Council’s Housing Maintenance department has four depots located around the City to carry out maintenance:

Measures have also been adopted to give priority to vacant houses in order to make them available for re-letting as soon as possible.

Provision and maintenance of halting sites


Cork City Council actively pursues Government policy in relation to accommodation of the Traveling community, having regard to the recommendations of the Task Force on Travellers and legislation. A five year plan on the provision of accommodation for Travellers within the City Council’s administrative area is now being prepared.

 

To date, Cork City Council has provided 4 Halting Sites for Travellers located at Knocknaheeny, Ballyvolane, Mahon and Carrigrohane. Cork City Council takes legal action to remove any unauthorised caravans from official halting sites, City Council property or public areas.
