Written answers (Question to Housing)

The detailed detailed information requested by the Deputy relating to the social housing stock of Meath and Westmeath County Councils, is not collected by my Department. However, the National Oversight and Audit Commission published a report in May 2017 titled 'Local Authority Housing Management and Maintenance Review' which does provide a profile of the local authority housing stock and in particular, at Table 2.2, sets out 'the Number of Bedrooms in Local Authority Housing' and at Figure 2.4 'the Percentage of Housing Units by No. of Bedrooms in each Local Authority'. 

The report can be accessed at the following link:

Further detailed information on local authority housing stock should be available from the local authorities themselves.
