Since the Buy & Renew Scheme was introduced in 2017, local authorities have delivered over 400 properties, with funding of €76.8m approved by my Department.

Details of the numbers of properties per local authority are set out in the table below. Local authorities may also acquire properties in need of remediation under their normal acquisitions programmes, the responsibility for which is largely delegated to local authorities.
