Current Research Areas

The following are some of the research projects that we are currently working on.  Most of our research is commissioned by the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government (DHPCLG).

Review of Part V

The DHPCLG has requested a review of Part V of the Planning and Development Act 2000. A Request for Tenders has been issued on etenders to engage consultancy to prepare a document on our behalf to inform the consultation process. The closing date for tenders is 24th February.

Housing Assistance Payment Regulatory Impact Assessment

The DHPCLG has requested us to undertake work to inform the basis of a Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) for the proposed transfer of rent supplement from the Department of Social Protection (DSP) to the DHPCLG/local authorities.


We have been asked by the DHPCLG to consider how we might contribute to the evidence base regarding regeneration.  We have engaged Dr Michelle Norris of University College Dublin to assist with this work. 

Study to Examine the Feasibility of a Deposit Protection Scheme (for PRTB).

The Private Residential Tenancies Board has asked us to manage this project on their behalf.  A Request for Tenders was advertised on etenders, with a closing date of 6th February.
