Motion in the name of Cllr. Alison Gilliland

Dublin City Council SPC recognises the over-reliance of DCC housing projects on contracting private development & construction companies to develop and particularly build local housing projects. This situation inevitability adds cost to and reduces control over projects. Therefore, the Housing SPC asks the DCC Housing section to conduct an initial viability study into the establishment of a DCC Building Company that would work with DCC Housing section to site manage and build DCC housing projects and ultimately maintain DCC housing stock - examples of such Council building companies include City Building (Glasgow City Council) and Goram Homes (Bristol City Council). That this initial viability study consider legislation, financing, structure, management and recruitment/staffing and report back to the Housing SPC at its meeting in July.
