Calls have been made for Carlow to be included in the Rent Pressure Zones as people are struggling to rent in the county.

Cllr John Cassin brought the matter up at this month's meeting of Carlow Municipal District and asked about contacting the Department of Housing to ensure that Carlow is added to the list of areas. 

An RPZ is where rent increases are capped at 4% per annum over a three year period.
