The Department of Housing have confirmed that over 80 new homes at a cost of €20.4m will be built in the coming months ahead in a bid to ease the current homelessness crisis.
The news which announced by Simon Coveney recently, will see two areas of Dublin receive the rapid build housing in 2017.
The department say a total of 83 temporary homes will be built, with twenty-four homes, at a cost of €5.9 million, being built on the Killininny Road, Firhouse, Dublin 24. Meanwhile a further 59 modular houses costing in the region of €14.5m, will be built in St Cuthbert’s Park in Clondalkin.
Speaking the new scheme recently, Minister Coveney said: “I have approved two projects estimated to cost €20.4million which will deliver 83 homes for homeless families.
“These homes will take families out of commercial hotels and provide them with a home until they move to permanent social housing.”
