NAMA

Status Update - October 2017

At the end of September 2017, a total of 6,946 residential properties have been identified by NAMA as potentially available for social housing.  Demand has been confirmed by the local authorities for 2,793 of the properties that NAMA has identified.

Local authorities have confirmed that 2,416 of the properties are considered unsuitable by reference to sustainable planning and housing policy or are located in areas with no demand.   A further 1,737 properties have been sold or privately let by the owners or receivers.

To date, a total of 2,428 residential properties have been delivered for social housing providers comprising of 2,216 completed properties with a further 212 that have been contracted where completion work is on-going.  The following diagram summarises the overall progress.

Of the 2,216 properties completed to date, 114 houses and 243 apartments were delivered across six separate developments with mix of social and private rented homes. The properties were purchased or leased by three AHBs with assistance from the Department through the social housing current expenditure programme for 275 properties with the remaining 82 rented on the private market, thus ensuring sustainable mixed-tenure developments.  These projects in Cork, Dublin, Galway and Laois provide a good illustration of sustainable housing policy in practice; a policy which aims to provide a balanced sustainable mix between social and private housing within a community.
