The time to Build
It has been a week of shocks and revelations about the housing market, particularly in the capital. The ESRI forecast 54,000 new homes were needed in Dublin over the next seven years and 86 per cent of national housing demand was in the capital and its surrounding commuter counties. The Construction Industry Federation responded that only 2,000 new homes would be built in the Dublin area this year and developers could not access funds to build more.
