Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
Social and Affordable Housing Provision
1198. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government if he has met with either Cavan or Monaghan County Council to discuss social housing strategies; the housing targets for new builds in both counties for 2020; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2876/20]
I have met regularly with the Chief Executives of all the local authorities, including those from Cavan and Monaghan, in relation to the advancement of social housing in line with Rebuilding Ireland. I most recently met the Chief Executives in January 2020, having previously met with them in September 2019 and holding a Housing Summit with them in February 2019.
My Department also meet regularly with local authority housing teams, including Chief Executives and Directors of Service. This includes meetings with the local authorities individually and collectively, to examine progress in terms of Rebuilding Ireland targets.
Social housing delivery targets were issued to all local authorities in 2018 covering the period 2018-21. Both the targets and information of the progress in meeting them, are published on my Department's website at the following links:
