Question:

356. Deputy Stephen S.

Written answers (Question to Environment)

Last month I announced the approval of some 56 social housing construction projects with an overall value of some €68 million under the Local Authority housing construction programme for 2014-2015. This new construction programme will deliver 449 new units of accommodation for people on the housing waiting list. Projects were selected for funding approval on the basis of the proposals submitted to my Department by the local authorities, the relative priority afforded to each of these projects and the overall level of housing need locally. Accordingly, some 67% of the overall funding was allocated to projects being advanced in those twelve local authorities where social housing need was greatest and which, between them, accounted for some 70% of overall national need.

Details of the proposals received from local authorities and which were not approved to advance under this initiative are set out in the following table:
