Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
1196. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government the number of homes allocated to tenants of local authorities under the long-term leasing housing scheme by local authority in tabular form; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2813/20]
Of the 50,000 social housing homes to be delivered under Rebuilding Ireland, over 10,000 homes are targeted to be leased by local authorities and approved housing bodies under leasing arrangements from a range of different sources, including direct leasing by local authorities and approved housing bodies, rental availability agreements, the Repair and Leasing Scheme, the Mortgage to Rent Scheme and Enhanced Leasing. The exact blend of delivery under leasing in any given year will depend on the availability of existing stock and new homes in particular. Leased properties are allocated to tenants in accordance with the relevant local authority’s allocation scheme.
Details of dwellings leased by local authorities up to end Q3 2019 are available on my Department's website at the following link:
Figures for Q4 2019 are currently being collated and will be published when complete.
