Local TD says Government housing plan is already behind schedule


A local TD says that the Government housing plan is already behind schedule.

Fianna Fáil TD Niamh Smyth says that families across the two counties are being let down by this Government which is failing to provide enough homes.

New figures have revealed that the Rebuilding Ireland programme is already missing its own targets.

She says that in 2016 the Government delivered just 1,730 new homes – well below its target of 2,260.

She adds that the latest figures, which cover the first nine months of 2017, reveal that a target of 3,200 was set and only 743 homes were delivered.
