by | Mar 15, 2024

Irish Home Builders Association, a constituent association of the Construction Industry Federation, has welcomed the increase in housing completion figures announced by the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien.

According to new data released by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, 32,695 new homes were completed in 2023.

Conor O’Connell, Director of Irish Home Builders Association and Director of Housing and Planning in the Construction Industry Federation said: “We welcome the Minister’s announcement of the increase in housing completions in 2023.

“Recent Government initiatives such as the Development Charges Waiver and Water Connection Rebate schemes, Project Tosaigh, Croi Conaithe and the ongoing Help to Buy and First Home Scheme are playing a crucial role in driving house building increases.

“It is vital that these continue, so that we can build more homes for sale, build more cost rental and affordable housing, as well more social housing.

“Members of Irish Home Builders Association are committed to building on this positive momentum. It is critical that an upward trend in housing commencements and completions continues in the months ahead at this time of urgent housing need.”
