First sector wide independent tenant experience survey shows high level of satisfaction with housing associations. The sector is well-placed to ramp-up social housing delivery under the Rebuilding Ireland Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness.
Tipperary County Council is responsible for the delivery of Social Housing in accordance with National Policy and in response to Housing Need in the County.
A key action of the Government’s Rebuilding Ireland: An Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness is the Repair and Leasing Scheme. The scheme targets the delivery of social housing units and also ensures that existing housing stock is used to the maximum degree possible.
