Written answers (Question to Housing)

My Department does not allocate specific funding for estate management purposes as this is a matter for each individual local authority.

Local authorities receive income from a variety of sources, including grants from Central Government, Local Property Tax, commercial rates and other locally-raised charges. Each authority is mandated to determine its own spending priorities, while having regard to locally identified needs and available resources.
