Housing Commission’s public survey about how to improve the housing system in Ireland

Housing Commission’s public survey about how to improve the housing system in Ireland

The Housing Commission has launched a survey to assess opinions on how the housing system should look in Ireland. It's using this opportunity for the housing market feedback.

The Housing Commission was established last year to examine issues on how to provide a sustainable housing system including supply, tenure, standards, and quality of life in the provision of housing. The Commission is conducting a public consultation on the Housing Commission's projections for long-term housing policy after 2030.

The public, interested stakeholders and committee members have been really responsive to the questionnaire. The feeling is that folks are really grateful for all of your input.





The main areas the housing commission will be examining are the cost and quality of housing, such as affordability of private rental accommodation, and affordability for first-time buyers.

Other factors the Housing Commission is examining are the capacity of the construction sector to house people, rural housing, regulation of social housing and the role of approved bodies in building homes for people.

Residential consultation services are open to the public until April 18th. There are no prerequisites required in order to consult, and responses given will not be linked to an individual.
