The Committee looks forward to meeting with Professor Hegarty and the Irish Council for Social Housing and hearing what is driving these inflationary pressures, the areas affected, and the impact on tender prices, budgets and delivery times. We also hope to hear how they believe these rising costs can controlled and managed so has to minimise the impact on delivery of new homes in particular.”
