MLRC welcomes Minister Coveney’s report, Rebuilding Ireland – an Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness

Rebuilding IrelandWe welcome the publication by Mr Simon Coveney T.D., Minister for Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government, of “Rebuilding Ireland – an Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness.”

MLRC welcomes the careful consideration that the report brings to the housing and homelessness crisis and the focus and attention on the current crisis. We also welcome the plan to deliver 47,000 new social houses over the next six years, as well as several practical recommendations to alleviate the very serious difficulties facing families in emergency accommodation. We continue to have serious concerns about the rising numbers of families entering homelessness and the difficulties and barriers families are facing in accessing emergency accommodation and sourcing appropriate emergency accommodation.

We will now carefully consider the proposals contained in the report and prepare a more detailed comment shortly.

The full report is available here.
