Phone call to renew the Occupant in Situ scheme

The federal government’s Real estate for All Approach has actually compelled Dublin Common council (DCC) to desert their home buying plan which focused on stopping homelessness, creates Rose Barrett.

Cllr Daithí Doolan (SF) for Ballyfermot-Drimnagh stated: “DCC established the Tenant Sitting scheme in 2018 as a homeless avoidance device. The scheme enabled DCC to get homes where the renter encountered expulsion through no fault of their own.

“This enabled the family stay as council renters as well as stay clear of the injury of being homeless.

Councillor Daithí Doolan”The system was extremely successful as well as protected against 147 households from entering homelessness,”Cllr Doolan added.”It was disclosed in an inquiry I raised at Monday’s( Jan 10)council conference that this government has

put an embargo on any more houses being acquired by the council under this system. This is stunning. It is especially undesirable as the homeless dilemma remains to grow. “Cllr Doolan called on Minister for Real Estate, Darragh O’Brien TD to review this decision instantly and to

renew the scheme “as an issue of necessity.”
