Has there been any scrutiny of the back and forth between the Departments and the local authorities? I know from being a local authority member that sometimes the local authority will say it is with the Department and the Department will say it is with the local authority.
There can be time delays and cost increases as a result of that interaction. It may be no one's fault but it is a systemic element that seems to be adding to the delays in housing. Is that something NOAC has looked at or hopes to expand on as the public housing programme expands?
