Housing Commission seeking views on the housing system in Ireland

Front Page

The Housing Commission has launched a public consultation seeking views on the housing system in Ireland. They are inviting members of the public and interested stakeholders to give their views on a range of issues detailed in an online questionnaire.

The Housing Commission was established last year to examine issues on how to provide a sustainable housing system including supply, tenure, standards, and quality-of-life issues in the provision of housing. The Commission, which is independent, is conducting public consultation.

The purpose of this consultation is to inform the Housing Commission’s consideration of long-term housing policy post 2030. It is also looking at current housing issues that could affect the long-term.

The Housing Commission is seeking specific views on each of the following areas:

  1. Maintaining a sustainable housing supply and providing balance and choice of tenures
  2. The cost and quality of housing, including the drivers of cost
  3. The capacity of the construction sector to meet housing supply requirements
  4. The affordability of private rental accommodation
  5. The affordability of house purchasing for first-time buyers
  6. Rural housing
  7. Regulation of social housing
  8. The role of Approved Housing Bodies in housing provision

 In completing this consultation, the public has an opportunity to provide feedback on one, some or all of the areas above, depending on your preference.

All of the answers you give will remain completely confidential. Consultation responses will not be linked back to any individual. Depending on your responses, this consultation can take up to 20 minutes to complete.

The consultation period is running from Tuesday, 21 March until Tuesday, 18 April 2023.

 The Commission is encouraging as many people as possible to have their say in this consultation on the future of housing in Ireland.
