It’s hoped a new ‘first of its kind’ scheme will allow four young couples or families to build a home in a Tipperary village.

Four ‘Ready to Build’ sites in Boherlahan are being offered for sale for €25,000 each by the local authority.

They are fully serviced and the development costs are being waived as long as the buyers live in their principal private residence for the next ten years.

The council is waiving the development fees as long as the buyers live there for ten years.

It’s hoped the scheme will help people struggling to find a home and promotes house building.
