Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
527. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government the amount his Department has spent and the number of additional housing units delivered over the past 18 months in each category (details supplied), in tabular form. [51972/17]
The information requested by the Deputy is provided in the following table. In keeping with the quarterly return of housing statistics, the data covers the 15 month period from 1 July 2016 to 30 September 2017. Data in respect of quarter 4, 2017 will be finalised early in the New Year.
It should be noted that as my Department provides funding to projects as they advance, there may be significant expenditure on a social housing project in a particular year, which may not deliver completed social housing until the following year.
