Social Housing Targets 2018-2021

The Social Housing Target 2018 – 2021 for delivery by this Council is 1563 homes. In 2018, 674 new homes were delivered which is an increase of more than 23% on the number delivered in 2017. A further 652 new homes were delivered in 2019.  

The provision of suitable, good quality accommodation and housing support for people in need of housing continues to be a priority for this Council. Delivery is achieved by focusing on a number of delivery options provided for under Rebuilding Ireland such as Direct Build, Acquisitions, Part V Acquisitions, Void Management, Long Term Leasing, Enhanced Leasing, Repair to Lease, Private Rental (RAS and HAP), and the Buy and Renew Scheme. 

dlr works in partnership with the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government (DHPLG) and Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs) on the delivery and management of social housing, availing of all opportunities to provide homes for families in need.
