My Department publishes comprehensive programme level statistics on a quarterly basis on social housing delivery activity. This data is available to the end of 2021, and is published on the statistics page of my Department’s website, at the following link: www.gov.ie/en/collection/6060e-overall-social-housing-provision/

My Department also published the Quarter 4 2021 Social Housing Construction Status Report (CSR), which provides details of social housing developments that have been completed or were under construction in each local authority at the end of 2021. The report is available at the following link: www.gov.ie/en/publication/af746-social-housing-construction-projects-status-report-q4-2021/

The Social Housing Construction Status Report does not include data on Part V schemes funded through local authority part V delivery or the Capital Assistance Scheme. The CSR does contain a number of AHB Part Vs which are advancing as part of larger schemes approved under the Capital Advance Leasing Facility. Details on all Part V delivery is published on my Department’s website at www.gov.ie/en/collection/fd048-affordable-housing-and-part-v-statistics/.
