Social Housing Assessment
We have been informed by the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government that each Housing Authority is required to prepare a Summary of the Social Housing Assessments (s.21 Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009) for its administrative area. This Summary is now carried out annually and the counting date this year is 11th June 2018. Deadline for the return of summary to the Department is 29th June, 2018.
This statutory Assessment will identify the number of qualified households on our Housing List whose housing need have not been met. This list does not include those households on a transfer list or in accommodation provided under RAS or HAP.
This undertaking of the Summary of Assessment will present additional challenges for the Housing Department.
Kilkenny County Council will contact all approved social housing clients being reviewed in the coming months.
Please read the documents listed below to familiarise yourself with the housing assessment process.
