Abstract

The article examines the funding and financial sustainability of local authority provided social housing in Ireland. To do so it draws on: a comprehensive analysis of arrangements for funding the sector and expenditure trends since 1990; comparison of these arrangements with those used to fund social housing in other Western European Countries and case-studies of council housing output, management and maintenance in five local authorities. The argument offered here is that the arrangements used to fund council housing provision are highly unusual in the international context and, although useful in ensuring the affordability of housing for low-income tenants, are very problematic from the perspective of enabling the efficient and affordable delivery, management and maintenance of dwellings.
