Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government

Implementing Housing for All: Discussion (Resumed)

Mr. Barry Lynch:

The scheme certainly provided opportunities and brought through some units that would not otherwise have come through. That was certainly the case in recent years. It is important to note that mortgage to rent would be included as part of leasing. That is an important stream to keep going. I do not anticipate the scheme disappearing entirely but we have not included it in our targets beyond 2023 because Housing for All intends for it to be phased out.
