Local councils must be forced to take action to address housing crisis
To say that local authorities are under-performing in housing provision is an under-statement.
The lack of progress is appalling. It beggars belief that an entire arm of the State has just 26 homes under construction more than a year after projects were approved.
It's not just city and county councils which have questions to answer. Has the department been tracking progress? Has it been in contact with the chief executives of local authorities seeking progress update reports?
