Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
Approved Housing Bodies
220. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government the number of approved housing bodies that have sold housing units funded under the CLSS scheme; the number of units sold; the conditions under which sale agreements were entered into; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [45754/19]
I am not aware of any social housing units funded under the Capital Loan and Subsidy Scheme (CLSS), which have been sold by Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs).
AHBs in general operate as providers of social housing, and their approach is set out in their own internal rules (including Memorandum and Articles of Association). Accordingly, I do not expect that the disposal of their social housing stock would ordinarily arise.
