Túath welcomes €1.5bn Local Authority social housing plan

The association welcomes new Government housing targets for local authorities to 2017.

The State plans for over €1.5 billion to be invested in a combination of building, buying and leasing schemes by local authorities to accommodate 25% of those currently on the housing waiting lists in social housing. It is a clear signal that housing is now a top priority.

The association sees this as a timely move as part of the Government’s €3.8 billion social housing strategy to 2020 and a massive kick-start to an ambitious and much needed social housing building programme.
