Submission to the Department of Finance and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform

The supply shortage of housing in Dublin and other urban areas is a key concern. Approximately 89,000 units were built in 2006 and just 8,301 in 2013. In Dublin price inflation is at 22% year on year which is clearly unsustainable. We have set out a series of recommendations which we believe will help improve the supply of property and support the development of a more sustainable and normally functioning property market.
