The Irish Ministry of Housing, Local Government and Heritage has unveiled plans for another iteration of its successful PPP housing bundles.

The newly announced seventh bundle will deliver over 640 new units across six sites in Dublin, Galway, Limerick, and Wexford.

In June, the authority also appointed a swathe of advisors to help prepare the multi-bundle programme, which in total will now deliver around 3,500 homes, in addition to the 1,000 already delivered in the first two bundles.

The government is in the midst of procuring its third housing bundle, having kickstarted the procurement at the end of last year.

The National Development Finance Agency (NDFA) will conduct the procurement in conjunction with the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage and relevant local authorities.

“The success of this model for social housing delivery is evident,” said Housing Minister Darragh O’Brien. “Today’s announcement underlines this Government’s commitment to building more social homes and demonstrates the proactive approach we are taking to tackle our housing challenges.”
