Jack O’Connor questions Wicklow County Council on housing scheme

Labour’s Jack O’Connor has requested information from Wicklow County Council regarding their plan to allocate a number of social and affordable houses under the Part V Scheme over the last two years, and how many houses will be built in total.

O’Connor highlighted that Part V of the Planning and Development Act provides for social and affordable housing obligations for developers who build more than nine houses on a site.

He said “I have requested the County Council to provide me with the following information: The number of Part V houses that have been allocated in the last two years; based on the number of commencement notices and Part V agreements, how many units will be coming on stream over the next two years?”

“I have also requested an assurance from the Council that irrespective of the locations, that Part V houses will be built as part of these developments and not transferred to other areas.”

“I believe it is important that residents of Co. Wicklow – and in particular those families on the Council’s housing list – know that developers are complying with the planning regulations and that the Council is strictly enforcing the terms of these regulations.”
