An Affordable Housing Fund application was submitted by Mayo County Council to my Department in September 2022 seeking funding to assist in the delivery of 13 affordable purchase homes in Springfield, Westport. I granted approval in principle to this application in November 2022 and scheduled delivery of these affordable homes will be in 2024.

My Department, the Housing Agency and the Housing Delivery Coordination Office are available to assist Mayo County Council, and indeed all local authorities, to develop and deliver affordable housing and, where a sufficient need for affordable housing is suitably evidenced, will consider any application for funding in support of an affordable housing scheme submitted for consideration.
