In line with commitments in the Programme for Government and Housing for All: A New Housing Plan for Ireland, the Housing Commission was established by Government in December 2021 to independently examine and review the housing system in Ireland. The Commission has been tasked to examine issues such as tenure, standards, sustainability and quality-of-life issues in the provision of housing, all of which have long-term impacts on communities. This will include efficient functioning of the markets for construction and provision. The Commission will also bring forward proposals on the wording for a referendum on housing. The Commission operates independently of my Department. The Commission is scheduled to conclude its work by the third quarter of this year.
