The granting, modification or refusal of local authorities ‘Own Development’ under Section 179 of the Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended, is a reserved function of the elected members. I am specifically precluded from exercising any power or control in relation to any particular case with which a planning authority or the Board is or may be concerned.
My Department publishes comprehensive programme level statistics on a quarterly basis on all social housing delivery activity including the delivery of local authority housing. This is published on the statistics page of my Department’s website, at the following link: https://www.housing.gov.ie/housing/social-housing/social-and-affordble/overall-social-housing-provision
The provision of local authority housing and securing the necessary planning consent is a matter for each local authority and consequently the information requested by the Deputy is not collected by my Department.
