QUESTION: Councillor F. Timmons

To ask for a report into the reasons why no houses have been built 2013 to 2014 and how many in 2015 where built by SDCC and how many are envisaged to be built in 2016 ?


The following is a schedule of new build projects which commenced on site in 2015:

Scheme Address Estimated Delivery Date
Suncroft Tallaght 10 dwellings 2nd Quarter 2016
St Finians 2 dwellings 2nd Quarter 2016
Belgard Road Tallaght (traveller accommodation) 3 dwellings 1st Quarter 2016
Total 15

The Office of Government Procurement is establishing a new framework for Consultants in respect of new build projects within specified financial thresholds; when this framework has been declared active (due to be finalised end January 2016) SDCC propose to go to tender in respect of the following projects, which have been Part V8 approved:

Scheme Address
St. Marks Green 11 dwellings
Mayfield 18 dwellings
Mac Uilliam 28 dwellings

Progress on the rollout of the Part V Programme as reported to March 2015 Co. Co. Meeting is as follows:

Scheme Name (Location Address) Approved by Council Current Stage
Dromcarra, Tallaght 14 Yes, June 2015 Full Cost plan submitted to DECLG – awaiting Pre-Tender Approval

Owendoher, Ballyboden 40 Yes, October 2015 Full Cost plan submitted to DECLG – awaiting Pre-Tender Approval
Killinarden, Tallaght 27 Yes, November 2015 Full Cost plan submitted to DECLG – awaiting Pre-Tender Approval

The Council is unable to confirm estimated completion dates in respect of the above Part 8 projects pending receipt of budget cost approval from the Declg. The projects listed are in included in the SDCC Housing Strategy 2015-2017 new build programme.

The Part 8 programme will continue to progress on an incremental basis throughout the county. As part of the consultation process the Council is open to engaging with representative resident groups within the area of the proposed develpment.
