Action 2 of Construction 2020- A Strategy for a Renewed Construction Sector, published in May 2014, commits to the establishment of a Housing Supply Coordination Taskforce for Dublin. Accordingly, the Task Force was established in June 2014 and comprises of the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government, the four Dublin local authorities (Dublin City, Fingal, South Dublin and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown), NAMA and other agencies, with the Chief Executive of South Dublin County Council as chair.
The focus of the Task Force is to address supply-related issues to the delivery of housing units in the Dublin region. The group are working together to identify housing developments that have planning permission and that are capable of delivering housing to the market. This remit includes monitoring relevant housing data on the supply of viable and market-ready approved developments.
The data collated by the Dublin Housing Supply Coodination Task Force on the aggregated planning permissions and planning applications across the four Dublin local authorities are organised into two groups;
• Tier 1 - Sites with planning permission (either active or inactive)
• Tier 2(a) - Sites where planning permission has being applied for and a decision is awaited
Information on the individual planning application (planning reference, housing units, etc) is also detailed. The mapping is based on the data obtained from the four Dublin local authorities and further queries relating to individual sites may be directed to the relevant local authority.
