Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Delivering Public Homes

1 October, 2021

This document outlines Sinn Féin’s €3bn Alternative Budget for Housing 2022 to deliver 20,000 public homes a year, tackle rising rents, address housing inadequacy and inequality, fund a substantial defects redress scheme and contribute towards our climate emission reductions targets. Sinn Féin’s plan would more than double direct capital investment in public housing to address the challenges facing our housing system, including the chronic lack of secure, adequate, and affordable housing; the slowdown of construction due to the closure of building sites; the rise in construction inflation due to Brexit and Covid 19 and the need to meet our legally binding emissions reduction targets following the passing of the Climate Act.
