Dublin Central Housing Update, Dublin City Council.

img_0113-1


As the Fine Gael Leader on Dublin City Council, I and my party colleagues have been challenging the ‘perceived wisdom’ that the Government has failed to provide sufficient money to allow Dublin City Council build much needed housing. The Council’s Chief Executive in response to Fine Gael questioning confirmed that there is no issue with funding for Dublin City Council. No proposal for housing has been delayed by Minister Simon Coveney’s Department and funding has been made available for projects like Dominick Street regeneration, Dolphin’s Barn regeneration, St. Agatha’s Court redevelopment and the former Council lands next to the Church of the Most Precious Blood in Cabra, to name just a few.


In order to keep North Inner City residents and communities across Dublin Central updated of housing projects, I have provided details below of all the current housing developments being advanced by Dublin City Council or voluntary housing bodies like Cluid Housing, Circle Housing, etc.
