Housing Summit

Posted January 25th, 2018

Following the conclusion of our Second Housing Summit with the Chief Executives of each of the 31 Local Authorities, I am announcing a number of key outcomes and further actions that were agreed to further accelerate and increase the delivery of social and affordable housing. Homeless prevention measures, as well as supporting those who are experiencing homelessness, were also a key focus of the Summit.

Rebuilding Ireland is working – we are moving in the right direction. Summits like the one held today, and last September, are how we drive accelerated implementation of that plan.

Some of the focuses of our meeting were:

  • – Targets & Reporting
  • – Better coordination & support
  • – New leasing Initiatives
  • – Vacancy
  • – Affordability
  • – Housing First
  • – Prevention
  • – Rapid Build Family Hubs
