Residents living near a future second runway at Dublin Airport will be offered 30 per cent above market value to sell their homes.
The project - given the go ahead in 2007 - has been revived given the changing economic climate and an increase in passenger numbers.
According to the Irish Times, those interested will have three years after it opens - expected to be in 2021 - to decide whether or not to sell their homes.
Last year Dublin airport management proposed a premium of 20% but have now raised their offer.
Under the terms of planning, properties located within a specific "noise contour" area around the airport where volumes reach 69 decibels or higher, qualify for the scheme.
38 homeowners are in the area and the level of take-up is not yet clear.
