Housing is a national priority! What can we do to solve the crisis?

There is a housing crisis! And in response to this crisis, the government’s action plan ‘Rebuilding Ireland’ aims to double the annual level of residential construction to 25,000 homes and deliver 47,000 units of social housing in the period to 2021. It plans to do this whilst at the same time making the best use of the existing housing stock and laying the foundations for a more vibrant and responsive private rented sector. Realising these ambitious targets (which alone are still not nearly enough to resolve the supply crisis) will require a mammoth rethinking of how we provide housing. Indeed, the delivery of significant volumes of new housing supply of all tenures is acknowledged now as a national priority.

It is against this background that The Sunday Business Post’s 2017 Residential Property Summit will bring together investors, developers, builders, finance providers and real estate agents to discuss and explore the prospects of the Irish residential property sector and the practical solutions to overcoming its many challenges. The day will focus on the Irish house building challenge and whether, and how, we can deliver the home-building revolution the country needs.
