I would be surprised if local authorities comission the building of any houses – my expectation is that the policy of buying in new-build estates and apartment developments will continue.
I didn’t know that they were doing this. Dublin city council at least has completed several new developments in recent years such as Blackhall Place and Bridgefoot Street.
In some countries, state housing support is entirely provided via rent and mortgage subsidy, avoiding the state assuming the role of landlord. I suspect this might be a better arrangement.
