Public Meeting with Eamon Ryan: Let's Talk Cost-Rental

You are invited to a public meeting with Eamon Ryan T.D. to discuss solutions to the housing crisis.

The current social housing model isn't working and we believe it is time to utilise the cost rental model to transform housing provision in Ireland.

This model is successful in a number of European countries which see lower rents and reduced inflationary pressure across their housing markets.

The Department of Housing has recently identified 700 sites that could be used for housing. We have plans for the construction of 3,000 units in Dublin at two of these sites, Cathal Brugha Barracks and Broadstone in Phibsborough. We believe that this is an opportunity to begin making this change and provide public housing at affordable rent levels.

The cost rental model is self sustaining and self funding and works by calculating rents on the basis of recovering the cost of the property over the lifetime of a long-term loan.

We are keen to hear from you on this issue. Join us in Slattery's Pub in Rathmines on the 5th of March where we will explain how the model works and identify other possible sites where it could be used. Get your free tickets here
