On 15 January last, I published indicative national figures for social housing output for 2017. These are available at the following link on my Department's website: http://www.housing.gov.ie/housing/rebuilding-ireland/social-housing-delivery-2017-ministers-statement.

Following completion of the necessary validation process, the full breakdown of this delivery for 2017, including by local authority area, will be published on my Department's website.  In the meantime, details in respect of delivery up to the end of quarter 3 of 2017 are currently published and available at the following link:

In relation to targets for further delivery, I discussed these at a second Housing Summit, which I held last week, with the Chief Executives of each of the 31 Local Authorities and I will be publishing targets, for delivery out to 2021, in the coming weeks.
