with 3000 houses to be built or rebuilt at a likely cost of €200k a unit that comes to €60m alone

Thought it was 1000 houses ? (With a land footprint available which is capable of providing 2-3000 homes. These are not promised by the report). Personally I don’t think the cost of implementing any of this should be an issue, in the same way as it is not an issue for the Ballymun regeneration. The problems in these areas have been ignored by succesive governments for far too long. While I would agree that LCC have to accept some of the blame, the boundary issue means that Moyross is governed by more than one authority and that has meant it has been left to rot as no-one has taken full responsibility for the area . As indicated a single body is needed to govern. As has been discussed many times the boundary issue is also skewing the true city population(whatever it may actually be) and as such the level of policing available to the city has never really been sufficient. The addition of extra Gardai is very positive.
The addition of the link road from Coonagh to the N7 is also a very positive step, opening up a whole new side to the city. It is probably the only way private investment would consider these areas. There is huge potential there.
As you say, Limerick city is really coming along nicely and with the implementation of this report which by all accounts is to happen pretty quickly, the only way is up and that can only be seen as a good thing.

As a matter of interest, has the Ballymun regeneration made much impact socially. Are there many negatives or is it pretty much a positive move as a whole? Has it just pushed the problems elsewhere?
