Chairpersons Business

Minutes:

Cllrs Daithi Doolan, Máire Devine, Pat Dunne & Cieran Perry highlighted the following issue;

That the Dublin City Council Housing SPC expresses deep concern at the Department of Housing, Local Government & Heritage’s decision to stop providing funds for the Tenant In Situ scheme.

With 147 acquisitions this scheme, established in 2018, has proved to be a very effective means of preventing homelessness in Dublin.

In light of the ongoing and deepening homeless crisis in Dublin, we ask that the Minister Darragh O’Brien reverses this decision and allows the TIS scheme to resume with immediate effect.

Agreed : Chairperson will arrange a letter in support of motion to Minister for Housing

Agreed : Management will provide feedback to a future SPC meeting regarding ongoing engagement with Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage
