Social housing needs to be assessed by Wiclow County Council

An assessment of social housing needs in County Wicklow is to be carried out by Wicklow County Council.


All future lettings of Local Authority owned/leased units will be made from this assessment.  As a result, it is essential that all approved social housing applicants return their forms by Friday, 29th July, 2016, to Wicklow County Council.


The Social Housing Assessment is a review of all approved applicants for social housing supports who are currently on the Social Housing List with Wicklow County Council.  The information provided by each applicant will be reassessed under the Social Housing Assessment Regulations, taking into account the applicant’s eligibility and need.


The Council will write to each approved applicant on its Social Housing List using their current address which means that anyone who has moved and changed address should contact the Housing Section of Wicklow County Council to update their details before Friday, 29th July, 2016.


Each approved applicant will be asked to complete a form and provide documentary supporting evidence and return this information to the Council.   Anyone having difficulty completing the form should contact the Housing Section for assistance.


If applicants fail to return this information within the specified time period, their application for Social Housing will be terminated and therefore they will not be considered for future offers of Social Housing Support.


Applicants should note that it will be necessary to restrict opening hours for the Housing Public Counter at County Buildings, Wicklow, effective from Tuesday, 2nd August, 2016 to Tuesday, 13th September, 2016.


The Public Counter will open from 9.00am to 1pm Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays).

Information in relation to housing is available at Emergency cases will continue to be dealt with outside of these restricted hours.


Wicklow County Council regrets any inconvenience caused.
