Towns and the rent cap list

 

Sir, – Simon Coveney’s choice of towns to include in the latest tranche of rent pressure zones where annual rent increases are limited to 4 per cent seems bizarre (“Galway city and 23 towns to be added to 4% per cent rent cap list”, January 28th). Rents are every bit as high in Delgany, Greystones and Kilcoole, which are not subjected to these controls, as they are in Bray, Enniskerry and Wicklow, which are included on the list. Surely if this is to be the approach then the whole of north Wicklow and indeed several other regions should have been included. – Yours, etc,
