Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
Local Authority Housing
409. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government if Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council will be instructed to buy the homes of tenants in receipt of a notice to quit at a location (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [50676/19]
Funding is available to all Local Authorities from my department to acquire homes on a targeted basis for Social Housing use. Ultimately, it is the local authorities that identify housing need in their area and oversee and prioritise the development of appropriate responses to meet this need. My Department does not prescribe how this is implemented at local authority level.
