More cash for urban renewal

Housing corporations in more wealthy parts of the country have agreed to put a combined €750m into helping corporations in run-down areas undertake major urban renewal projects, housing minister Ella Vogelaar said on Wednesday.

Vogelaar has a target list of 40 areas which she says have priority for upgrading. In total, housing corporations have agreed to put €2.5bn into urban renewal over 10 years.
