Fingal County Council on Track to Meet its Social Housing Delivery Target in 2018

CNI Editor reports

Fingal County Council, which has one of the highest delivery rates of new builds in the country so far this year, remains on track to deliver over 1,600 social housing homes in 2018 as set down by Government.

Fingal County Council has a target of 1,637 homes for the whole year and with significant delivery expected in the final quarter of 2018, the local authority is on track to meet that target.

Latest figures from the Department of Housing show that Fingal County Council has delivered 1,019 homes, almost two-thirds of its annual target, in the first nine months of 2018. They are across the range of housing mechanisms, including new builds, acquisitions and leasing.

During Quarter Four, Fingal County Council is expecting to deliver more than 600 homes across the county.

Director of Housing Margaret Geraghty said: “Fingal County Council remains on track to reach our delivery target of 1,637 in 2018 as set down by the Department. Up to the end of September, we have achieved two-thirds of this target and have delivered one of the highest number of new builds in the country.

“During the final quarter of 2018, we will see further homes come on stream across the country, and we are confident that we will reach the target. Fingal County Council is working tirelessly to ensure that we deliver our target and meet the needs of families and individuals who are on the housing list.”
