Press Release from Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage - Darragh O'Brien
As Ireland continues to face the COVID-19 challenge, additional measures must be taken in order to provide safe and secure homes for all our communities. Minister O’Brien has today launched a “Call for Housing 2020” – a new national call for property owners and developers with vacant properties to make them available for use as social housing.
In recent months The Housing Agency has been busy providing guidance and support for stakeholders in the apartment and multi-unit development sector in Ireland.
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how important resilient and sustainable communities are to us all.
Decisions we now make in relation to housing, planning and regeneration will play a fundamental role in the future of our communities. Measures that are put in place will need to be ambitious and will require adaptation to a new way of doing things.
