Views on the Northern Ireland Housing Supply Strategy

Response to the call for evidence by The Department for Communities

The Department for Communities (DfC) held a consultation based on the development of a new Housing Supply Strategy. This is the first formal stage of public engagement.

The policy objectives of the Strategy are to:

  • Increase housing supply and affordable options across all tenures to meet current and future demand.
  • Reduce housing stress and homelessness and improve housing solutions for the most vulnerable.
  • Improve housing quality.
  • Ensure the provision of housing options that contribute to the building and maintaining of thriving, inclusive communities and places.
  • Support the transition to carbon neutrality by reducing whole-life carbon emissions from both new homes and existing homes.
