Dáil Éireann Debate
180. Mr. Allen asked the Minister for the Environment if he will outline the amount of money provided for public housing in (a) County Cork, (b) Cork city and (c) to each urban district council in Cork county, for each of the years 1986 to 1991; and if he will make a statement on the matter in the context of whether these allocations were sufficient for the housing needs of those areas.
Minister of State at the Department of the Environment (Mr. Wallace): I assume the question relates to the capital allocations for the provision of local authority dwellings. I refer to the replies to Questions No. 34 of 4 May 1989, No. 252 of 25 April 1990, No. 69 of 14 March 1991 and No. 129 of 19 November 1991 for information relating to the period 1986-1990.
|Cork (North) County Council||1,139,000|
|Cork (South) County Council||603,000|
|Cork (West) County Council||221,250|
|Clonakilty Urban District Council||37,000|
|Cobh Urban District Council||199,100|
|Fermoy Urban District Council||47,000|
|Kinsale Urban District Council||121,600|
|Macroom Urban District Council||32,700|
|Mallow Urban District Council||157,000|
|Midleton Urban District Council||203,000|
|Skibbereen Urban District Council||57,000|
|Youghal Urban District Council||258,400|
I am satisfied that the availability of houses through construction-acquisition, the occurrence of vacancies in the housing authorities' existing stock, the capital provision for the voluntary housing scheme and the various initiatives under A Plan for Social Housing, if developed to their full potential by the housing authorities, constitute a reasonable response to the housing needs in all areas.
