IDA Ireland Data
563. To ask the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation the land and property acquired by IDA Ireland in 2017 and 2018; the price paid for the land and property, in tabular form; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [19071/19]
567. To ask the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation the properties and land rented by IDA Ireland in 2018, in tabular form including overseas properties; the yearly rent paid per property; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [19076/19]
I propose to take Questions Nos. 563 and 567 together.
It is important that the IDA has a supply of available properties that can be offered to firms considering making job-rich investments in Ireland, particularly for the regions. This helps diminish the lead-in time for potential investments and can be a key factor in securing projects for regional locations. The Agency works closely with city and county councils to ensure that any property acquisitions are in line with local area, county and city development plans.
When acquiring property, the IDA obtains independent valuations advice from an Agency-appointed property firm. This helps ensure the best outcome is achieved in terms of value for money.
Table A below details the properties acquired by IDA Ireland in 2017 and 2018 and the price paid in respect of each. Table B details the annual rent paid in 2018 by the IDA on non-Agency owned properties.
