The availability of an adequate supply of marketable serviced land and buildings in advance of demand is a key element in the IDA's ability to compete for mobile foreign direct investment. The availability of property solutions allows projects to commence at an earlier date by diminishing much of the difficulties associated with land acquisition, planning and construction. It is, therefore, an important means by which the IDA can encourage and attract new investors to Ireland, particularly to the regions.

I am informed that IDA Ireland owns 29 properties across the country. 13 of these are currently occupied by IDA clients with a further 16 properties available for occupation by prospective or existing clients.

The IDA uses hectares as its principal unit of land measurement and the Agency's property portfolio consists of approximately 4,400 hectares which is made up of business and technology parks, industrial estates and strategic sites. Of this, approximately 1,100 hectares of land is available for marketing and around 3,300 hectares of land is currently in use.

IDA Ireland does not collate data on land in use by county. However, it does hold data on land available for marketing in each county.

The following tables provide the latest figures respectively of all IDA Ireland land available for marketing and the number of IDA owned properties that are either occupied or marketable to clients:
