Donegal County Council wants to buy your site 25.04.15

DONEGAL County Council has issued an appeal today to buy up vacant and derelict parcels of land for social housing around the county.
The local authority invited expressions of interest from land owners with green and brownfield sites in eight towns including Buncrana, Clonmany, Glenties and Stranorlar.
It is also looking for land in Ballybofey, Donegal Town, Falcarragh-Gortahork and Ramelton.
The council said the vacant or underused sites should ideally be within walking distance of a school, church, shops and other facilities.
They should also be "favourably zoned", i.e., suitable for immediate residential development; serviceable and directly accessible from the public road. The sites should generally be level or only have gentle slopes.
"Landfill sites, contaminated ground and sites prone to flooding will not be considered," the council said in a statement.
"Any land purchased will be subject to good title, Departmental approval and funding availability."
Interested parties are asked to submit maps, title deed information, site sizes and site history to the council by May 27, 2016.
