Expansion of the Repair and Leases Scheme

The Housing Agency hosted a briefing session on the morning of the 12th of July to discuss the expansion of the Repair and Leases Scheme.

The Repair and Lease scheme has been expanded on a pilot basis to include the following:

  • vacant commercial units;
  • vacant units associated with a commercial unit (e.g. over the shop);
  • vacant institutional buildings;
  • unfinished developments which have been vacant for a significant period of time.


Aoife Joyce from DHLGH discussed the objectives, requirements and rationale behind the expansion.

Claire Feeney from The Housing Agency discussed the operation of the scheme to include The Housing Agency’s role.

Paul Johnston from Waterford City and County Council provided an overview of their Repair and Lease activity and the benefits of the expansion.
