I propose to take Questions Nos. 339 and 340 together.
My Department publishes comprehensive programme level statistics on social housing delivery activity. This data includes details on the number of social houses built between 2004 - 2015 and from 2016 onward. This data is published on the statistics page of my Department’s website, at the following link: www.gov.ie/en/collection/6060e-overall-social-housing-provision/.
Since 2016, in addition to the statistical overview of activity in each local authority, the Social Housing Construction Status Report is published each quarter which provides scheme level detail on new build activity in each local authority. The most recent publication covers the period up to the end of Q1 2021 and is available at the following link: rebuildingireland.ie/news/minister-obrien-publishes-social-housing-construction-status-report-for-q1-2021/.
The Central Statistics Office are responsible for the quarterly publication of all New Dwelling Completions. This data is complete to the end of 2020 and can be found at: data.cso.ie/product/NDC.
Increasing the supply of public, social and affordable homes is priority for this Government. The Government will shortly be publishing our new housing strategy, Housing for All, which will set out our policies for housing delivery.
