Written answers (Question to Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government)

In December 2011 NAMA identified over 2,000 properties as being potentially available for social housing, including 312 units in Cork County. From this list of some 2,000 properties a number of projects have been identified as being suitable for social housing, and these are being advanced for inclusion in the leasing scheme. These projects are at different stages of development and I expect that housing units will start to be delivered under this arrangement later this year. NAMA continues to work with a view to identifying additional units suitable for inclusion in the programme.
