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

The most recent figures on the numbers of unfinished housing developments in the Dublin region are in my Department's National Housing Development Survey 2011, published in October 2011, which can be found at www.environ.ie. As part of the process of preparing this survey, local authorities provided details of developments in their areas which remain unfinished. The following breakdown outlines the number of incomplete developments in the Dublin area:

Local Authority

No. Unfinished Developments

Dublin City Council

95

Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown County Council

60

Fingal County Council

149

South Dublin County Council

50

The National Housing Development Survey 2012 was commenced by my Department in June and will be completed over the summer months. I anticipate the publication of this survey in the autumn once the results have been collated.
