Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Planning Issues (1 Dec 2022)

Peter Burke: It is important to correct Deputy Connolly and say that the guidelines physically exist. They have to be screened as part of appropriate assessment before they can be published. That is part of the environmental process.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Planning Issues (1 Dec 2022)

Catherine Connolly: Is that process ongoing?

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Planning Issues (1 Dec 2022)

Peter Burke: Absolutely. We hope to publish the guidelines in January.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Planning Issues (1 Dec 2022)

Cormac Devlin: The next session will be questions to the Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science. While we await his arrival, I welcome our guests to the Visitors Gallery. Good morning to everybody. You are all very welcome. There were other visitors during the debate earlier, too. It is great to have so many visitors to the House today. It is an historic day, with...

Darragh O'Brien: B'fhéidir nach raibh an Teachta ag éisteacht le mo fhreagra ar an gceist sin. I answered it very clearly. We have set targets. We are using modern methods of construction. I suggest the Deputy be careful not to blur the lines, if I may. The emergency response to provide safe harbour to our friends from Ukraine, as Deputy O'Dowd has eloquently said, is separate to what we are...

(Interruptions).

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Policies (1 Dec 2022)

Darragh O'Brien: Níl mé críochnaithe fós. Let us be very clear that the targets with regard to additional delivery on modern methods of construction are very clearly set out and we will manage that centrally. This is different. There is a real opportunity to further ramp up the delivery of social and affordable homes, which I know the Deputy is asking for, but that is a separate...

Peadar Tóibín: We support safe harbour. It is a moral and international responsibility when people are fleeing war, violence or famine to stand up and give them shelter when it is needed. Nobody is arguing that point. We are simply saying there must be equality in the delivery of services in this State. The only baseline we are asking for in this situation is one from which everybody who is resident in...

Darragh O'Brien: We will deliver more new-build social homes in 2022 than we have done in decades. Approximately 10,500 social homes will be delivered for people who are on the social housing list. Some of the sheltered response we have for our friends from Ukraine are not permanent homes, such as the refurbished properties. I know the Deputy is not suggesting we would use that same response for people on...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Policies (1 Dec 2022)

Darragh O'Brien: What I am saying is that we very clearly set out under Housing for All what our social housing targets are. What I am looking to do next year is to further accelerate that delivery through the use of off-site and modular construction. I have already mentioned in my response to the Deputy that we have provided €100 million with regard to pay-down debt for local authorities, not just...

Peadar Tóibín: Thus, modular homes will not be used for housing.

Cormac Devlin: Through the Chair.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Policies (1 Dec 2022)

Darragh O'Brien: What part of my answer does the Deputy not understand? I have just said for the past few minutes that, of course, we are using modern methods of construction and modular construction. We are already doing that but we will be using additional good-quality, off-site construction builds under modern methods of construction, next year, in the programme we have set and has been debated in this...
