To date, 13 social housing capital projects are being advanced by local authorities via the single-stage approval process for projects with a maximum all-in budget up to €2m. These projects have been proposed by the local authorities in Meath, Louth, Laois, Cavan, Leitrim, Roscommon, Fingal, Wicklow and Galway County.

Revisions to the single-stage approval process were recently introduced, so I expect the take-up on this option will increase over time.
