Default The Action Plan for Housing.

As promised, The Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness is being launched by Minster Simon Coveney this afternoon.


Housing plan: 25,000 new homes to be provided each year to 2021
Plan also commits to supplying an additional 47,000 social housing units by 2021

The Government has promised that 25,000 new homes will be provided every year for the next six years under its plan to tackling the housing crisis.

The Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness, launched this afternoon, also commits to supplying an additional 47,000 social housing units by the conclusion of the plan.

Minister for Housing Simon Coveney has said that the 25,000 homes - through public and private development - will be provided each year.

Minister for Public Expenditure Paschal Donohoe also confirmed that he will provide an extra €2.2 billion over what has already been promised for social housing.

The plan, called “Rebuilding Ireland”, contains five pillars. These are addressing homelessness; accelerating social housing; building more private homes; improving the rental sector and utilising existing housing stock, such as vacant homes.

Social house building on this scale has not been undertaken in decades, with a previous reliance by councils on developers providing a portion of homes for social and affordable homes.

On the issue of tackling homelessness, the plan says that by the middle of next year, hotels will only be used as emergency accommodation in limited circumstances and support for homeless families with children will be increased.

It also says that the construction of rapid build homes will be expanded to 1,500 homes by 2018 and a new mortgage arrears resolution service will be introduced, among other measures.

The Government has officially launched its housing and homelessness plan entitled 'Rebuilding Ireland'.

The 114-page document aims to accelerate all types of housing supply and provide 47,000 new social houses over the next six years as well as targeting an annual overall build of 25,000 units per year.

The plan targets homelessness and aims to ensure that by this time next year hotels are used for families in only limited circumstances.

There will be extra help for those with mental health and addiction issues as well as supports for the rental sector and greater use of empty units.

The lack of homes and homelessness was described as a national crisis by all political parties earlier this year.

The plan, which was approved by Cabinet this morning, is the Government's response to that crisis.

Simon is a man of action, hence the title.

He's a doer, not one for cribbing from the sidelines, sure anyone can do that.

Richard Boyd Barret was already on the wireless criticising the plan so I had to turn him off.

If the relevant minister had published this programme before the last election, do you think FG would have done better?

Coveney is not the worst of them by a long chalk and in fairness did well in Agriculture in the first Enda administration.

Let it go.

Sometimes these things aren't worth it.

You're better than that.
