Sinn Fein has laid out detailed proposals to build affordable houses and provide affordable rents across Dublin and elsewhere.
The party’s spokesperson for housing, Eoin Ó Broin, explained that Sinn Fein would be able to build houses at a price of €230,000 per unit in Dublin, and €220,000 in other locations. These prices are almost €100,000 cheaper than those quoted by Fianna Fail and Fine Gael.
The same proposal includes details about providing affordable rents of between €700 to €900 a month.
According to Mr. O Broin, these savings would be achieved by cutting out ‘middlemen’ from the house building process, and enabling local authorities to work directly with builders.
