The financial allocations to local authorities in 2004 for their housing construction and acquisition programmes took account of authorities’ proposed housing starts and their contractual commitments on schemes under construction at the beginning of 2004. Detailed information on the number of local authority house starts and completions in 2004 and for the first six months of 2005 is available in the quarterly and annual housing statistics bulletins published by my Department, copies of which are available in the Oireachtas Library and on the Department’s website at www.environ.ie. The total 2005 outputs will be available in the 2006 annual housing statistics bulletin and on the Department’s website at www.environ.ie. At this stage it is anticipated that the number of houses completed or acquired by local authorities in 2005 will be in excess of the 2004 level of output.
