Written answers (Question to Housing)

The information requested by the Deputy is not collected by my Department. 

Under section 8 of the Derelict Sites Act 1990, each planning authority is required to maintain a register of derelict sites, including derelict houses and structures, in their respective functional areas and to have it available for inspection at its offices during office hours. In addition, some planning authorities publish their register online, although this is not required by statute.
