Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Delivering Affordable Homes

19 September, 2022

This document outlines Sinn Féin’s 2023 Alternative Budget for Housing that aims to fix our broken housing system and deliver affordable housing. A change of government is needed to reverse decades of bad housing policy. Our priority measures include delivering 20,000 public homes to meet social and affordable housing need; putting one month’s rent back into renters’ pockets and banning rent increases for three years; introducing an emergency package of measures to reduce homelessness and measures to improve housing standards; a greater focus on reducing carbon emissions in the built environment; 100% redress for those living with defective block and in defective buildings and a more participative and efficient planning system.
