How many empty homes in Cork city and beyond? bring them back into use and you'd make a fair dent in the so called housing crisis.There were a grand total of 754 new homes built in all of Cork City (including the boundary extension areas) last year. That is fuck all, and how many of them were socal housing, and how many were left for the private sales/family/first time buyer market?
Also there were just 98 apartments built, at a time when higher density housing is exactly what we need. We'd all love to see thousands of semi detached houses streaming into the market but the reality is the problem is so bad we need apartments, and fast.
But if just 13% of New supply is apartments, that's not fast enough.
