Affordable Housing Bill 2021: Committee Stage (Resumed)
I move amendment No. 38:
In page 12, between lines 28 and 29, to insert the following: “(9) Regulations undersubsection (7)will have regard to:(a) ensuring that the proportion of the applicant’s net income represented by housing costs not exceed 35 per cent of the total, and;
(b) ensuring that the applicant’s income falls within the bottom 40 per cent of national income distribution but is above the Maximum Net Income Threshold, as defined by the Social Housing Assessment Regulations 2011 (S.I. No. 84/2011), that applies in the housing authority area in which the dwelling is located.”.
I am going to withdraw the amendment with liberty to re-enter it whenever I have an opportunity to do so.
