Written answers (Question to Housing)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 2852 and 2987 together.

Findings and recommendations from the National Taking In Charge Initiative (NTICI) were included in a report on the initiative that was published by my Department in December 2018. The National Development Plan 2018-2027 includes provision of €31 million for the period 2018-2021 for developer-provided infrastructure, commencing with a provision of €6 million in 2019. I announced commencement of this new multi-annual funding programme, including details of the application process, on 23 July 2019.
