Expenditure on the Build programme of Rebuilding Ireland has more than quadrupled in three years, from €173m in 2016 to €742m in 2018. Construction by local authorities, is beginning to help address a significant demand for social housing, but at varying levels depending on location.
The objectives of this analytical note are as follows:
• Provide a brief explanation of financial mechanisms utilised by both LAs and AHBs in the delivery of new social housing stock
• Present data on new social housing output in summary format by location, delivery agency and funding mechanism, relating the delivery to social housing demand & other outputs
• Analyse and map the location of this delivery, at local authority area, visualising the data spatially to demonstrate progress from 2016 to 2018
