Social housing figures

AROUND 40% of Fingal County Council's social housing waiting list is occupied by singleparent families, it has been revealed.

In response to a question from Cllr Kieran Dennison (FG), the council said that out of 6,691 families on the social housing waiting list, 2,720 were single parent families.

A further question from Cllr Dennison sought information on the nationality of the people on the local authority housing list.

In response to that question, the council revealed that just under half of its waiting list was occupied by Irish citizens (48%). Some 19% of the list was taken up by EU citizens and a further 33% were people from outside the EU.
