Policy Options for Supporting the Provision of Housing at Affordable Prices

This report on the housing sector was commissioned by the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI), the professional representative body for chartered surveyors working in the property, land and construction sectors.

The objective of the report is to assess, and to make recommendations on, the policy options available for ensuring the provision of housing for the growing Irish population in the short and long term and to support the development of a more sustainable and stable housing market in Ireland.

The report is based on a performance review of the housing market and Government policy and leverages existing research on the housing sector from the National Economic & Social Council (NESC), the Housing Agency, ESRI and SCSI. Construction 2020 refers to “a strategic approach to the provision of housing, based on real and measured needs, with mechanisms in place to detect and act when things are going wrong” .

The recommendations are intended to establish a new strategic framework for the development of additional housing required for a growing population. They ensure that in the future a coordinated and integrated view is taken of the overall housing market. In addition, they suggest measures which will boost the sector in the immediate and short terms.
