Social and Affordable Housing Provision

The past five years of prosperity have been wasted on sweeteners for investors and developers. We need to change that and change it now to bring more homes into supply.

Social and Affordable Housing Provision

Housing for All still doesn’t deliver enough State-led social and affordable housing. Labour want this increased to 20,000 homes per year to address existing need and unmet demand.

We would build a further 2,000 social homes in 2022 in addition to the targeted 10,000 under all delivery streams that are funded for next year under the NDP. The government is also proposing a further 2,100 affordable homes in 2022. 

Under Labour’s Housing Plan we would also establish a fund to provide increased levels of affordable housing over 5 years, starting with €5 billion from the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund and €500m of annual seed capital.

We would also ensure allocations for traveller accommodation are spent by local authorities. 

Our allocation of €100m for retrofitting will bring a further 3,000 council homes up to a B2 BER rating every year building on the 2,400 funded in 2021.
