337. Ms C. Murphy asked the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government if tenant purchase can take place in relation to cooperative housing schemes; if so, the guidance that has been given to local authorities on the matter; when such a scheme is expected to be introduced; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [36816/06]
There is no provision at present in the voluntary housing schemes for the purchase of individual houses by tenants. However, it was provided under Housing Policy Framework — Building Sustainable Communities that consideration would be given in consultation with the voluntary and co-operative sector, to pilot a tenant purchase scheme for some new voluntary homes under the scheme. The timing and modalities of such a scheme, including any legislative element, will be developed in the coming months.
