Kildare Affordable Housing Survey

Closed23 Jan, 2023, 12:00pm - 10 Feb, 2023, 11:59pm

Kildare County Council is actively considering the provision of affordable housing over the coming years at a number of locations. In the first instance, eligibility for consideration for affordable housing will be determined by criteria, which may include income, set nationally.

As part of this process, the Council wishes to establish that there are sufficient levels of interest. If you consider that you qualify and are interested in declaring an interest provisionally at this point, you are invited to complete this online survey.

This information is sought by the Housing Department of Kildare County Council and retained in pursuance of the functions of Kildare County Council as a Housing Authority in relation to housing under the Housing Acts 1966-2015 and in relation to Affordable Housing under Part 5 of the Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009 and Section 96 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 as amended by provisions within the Affordable Housing Act 2021.

No properties are currently available for purchase under the affordable housing scheme
