Housing Crisis

HOUSING CRISIS

Fianna Fáil says ‘extraordinary measures’ are needed to tackle the housing crisis.

It comes as leaked documents from the Government’s action plan on housing reveals 45-thousand social houses are to be built over the next 5 years.

A draft copy of the document – seen by the Irish Times – suggests a new state fund will be established to purchase distressed properties.

The Housing Minister Simon Coveney will publish the housing plan in full next Tuesday, subject to Cabinet approval.
