Catherine Keenan, Director of Housing, stated
“dlr is providing housing through the full suite of options available to it, by direct build, Buy and Renew, acquisitions, working in partnership with Approved Housing Bodies and the Land Development Agency as well as leasing and HAP. Utilising all of these options enables Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown to exceed its targets year on year.”
This is the first Enhanced Long-Term Lease Agreement entered into by the Council, and is the first local authority to deliver new homes through this mechanism. This has been achieved with the support of the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government, the Housing Agency and the National Development Finance Agency and will provide much needed homes, with low running costs, for people in need of housing support in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown.
