€91 Million Investment in Housing Sector

By | Industry News

Govt. Invests in Refurbishing, Energy Efficiency and Adapting Houses for Older People and People with a Disability

Yesterday the Minister for Housing and the Minster for the Environment both announced a €91 Million investment across a number of schemes designed to increase the number and availability of social houses, improve the standard of homes for people with a disability and also upgrading existing houses to improve their energy efficiency rating.

Residential Housing

A €20 million investment is committed to returning over 1000 vacant housing units to use, while over €50 million is committed to adapting houses for older people and people with a disability currently living in private housing and a further €11 million for local authority housing.

In an effort to meet Ireland’s energy reduction targets by 2020 another €20 million has been allocated to improve the energy efficiency of homes.

Speaking yesterday Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government said

“The funding that I am announcing today, will significantly improve the quality of life of many people across Ireland. One of my huge frustrations is seeing boarded up social housing not being used, therefore it is important to see over 1,000 vacant units come back on stream as quickly as is possible,”

This major investment will provide a significant boos to the Irish residential Construction sector across all counties.

Proposal For Residential Construction Rules Exemptions

By | Industry News

Government Proposal Would See Residential Construction (Self-Build Homes & Extensions) Exempt from New Building Regulations


The Building Control Amendment Regulations 2013 were introduced early last year to give protection to home buyers following the major controversy generated following such Residential Construction schemes as the Priory Hall Development.

Critics of the regulations have pointed to the additional costs – up to €16,000 for inspections according to the Irish Independent – as being an unfair burden on home builders.  It is this light that the government are proposing exemptions.

It must be highlighted that should the regulations be lifted buyers would have very little in the way of protection.

Alternatives to proposed exemptions to the regulations include broadening the range of professionals qualified as ‘assigned certifiers’ to certify that buildings are compliant during the construction phase, as well as giving owners an opt-out clause.

According to a spokesman for the Housing Minister Paudie Coffey, there have been no firm decisions taken at this stage and the matter is still under public consultation.
