Expressions of interest sought for housing infrastructure funding

Wicklow County Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from housing providers to submit proposals for works which may be supported by the new national €200m Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Fund (LIHAF).


The fund is aimed at, but not restricted to, enabling off-site infrastructure such as access (eg distributor roads, bridges, pedestrian/cyclist facilities); environmental improvements (such as site remediation, surface water management, utility diversion) and community and amenity facilities (eg parks, sports/recreational facilities).


Under the scheme off-site infrastructure is defined as infrastructure that would normally fall to the local authority to provide or which would straddle a number of individual development sites, requiring a cross-developer/landowner funding solution.


Wicklow County Council is now seeking expressions of interest from housing providers, including private developers and home builders and/or Approved Housing Bodies, whose proposed developments may benefit from LIHAF Funding.


Expressions of interest must demonstrate the capacity to deliver in excess of 200 residential units and must:

  1. Identify the lands on which the proposed residential development will take place
  2. Identify the off-site infrastructure that is inhibiting development
  3. Identify the timescale of the proposed development
  4. Demonstrate a strong mix of private, rental and social housing delivery at affordable prices and rents


Further details are contained in the Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Fund – Call for Proposals document which may be downloaded at


Expressions of Interest should be sent in hard copy to: Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Fund –Wicklow County Council, Transportation & Roads Infrastructure Directorate, County Buildings, Wicklow, by close of business on October 4th.
