We want ministers to approve plans for affordable and social housing to be built on the Irish Glass Bottle House development site in Dublin 4. We need the local residents to have a voice and for them to be heard by the government. We have been out-priced from buying properties in our community for too long now. We need the government to implement a plan for the provision of houses that regular local people can afford.
Why is this important?
For many years now property prices in our local area have escalated beyond belief. For many years there has been no provision of social or affordable housing in our area and regular local people with regular jobs are unable to buy houses in our community. New local developments such as Bolands Mill offer no affordable or social housing as the government allowed the developers to buy back the 10% social housing they should have provided! We as a community need to address this local housing crisis and fight for people of all ages in our community so that we are able to remain living close to our networks of support.
How it will be delivered
We plan to deliver this petition, along with the signatures from the paper petitions that are already in circulation, to our local TD's and counsellors.
