Written answers (Question to Housing)

Details in relation to 2019 social housing build and acquisition targets, on a local authority basis, under Rebuilding Ireland, can be found on the Rebuilding Ireland website at the following link: http://rebuildingireland.ie/news/social-housing-targets-2019/.

Progress against these targets is reflected on a quarterly basis and details are published on my Department's website at the following link:

Voids are included within the overall build target for each local authority. The 2019 voids targets (capped under Rebuilding Ireland) for Cork City and Cork County are as follows:

2019 Voids Target

Cork City

Cork County

Additional voids beyond these targets will be considered for funding in the context of 2019 allocations to be announced shortly.
