Dubliners priced out of the capital over high rents face discrimination under scheme

Ireland News, Ireland Headlines

The basic criteria will be that the homes are the right size for the buyer. However, with demand likely to be considerably higher than the supply of homes, further criteria, set down by the Department of Housing, have to be put in place. The next group to be considered would be a family where at least one member had been living in the council’s area for at least 12 months.

If there are still too few houses, they would go to those who also had a household member with a job a set distance from the house. Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown councillors last month unanimously rejected the scheme but have been told by the Department of Housing they must vote again on Monday because the scheme has to be in place by June 18th to meet legislative requirements.
