The Land Aggregation Scheme (LAGS) was introduced in 2010 as part of revised arrangements for the funding of land for social and affordable housing purposes. Under the Scheme a total of 73 sites were transferred to the Housing Agency. whose Strategic Development and Management Plan identified 36 Sites as being Suitable for Immediate Development, 17 of which are currently under development. Where lands have a development capacity of approximately 100 units, it is envisaged that the development partners will be Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs).
The Housing Agency is seeking Expressions of Interest from AHBs to select appropriately experienced and resourced AHBs to work with the Agency to develop identified sites.
