Housing Supply Capacity in Dublin’s Urban Settlements 2014-18

A report, which has been commissioned by the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI), explores the capacity of lands zoned for residential development within the Dublin Region to deliver the requisite housing units for the projected population of the Dublin Region between 2014-2018.

The key findings in the report are:

  • There are 2,233 hectares (ha) of land zoned and potentially available for residential development, which is 2.4% of the total land area in the Dublin Region.
  • This zoned land can deliver approximately 102,500 additional housing units under the minimum recommended density scenario.
  • This can result in the provision of housing for approximately 269,000 additional persons.
  • There is a minimum housing unit requirement of 35,433 between 2014 – 20181. However, currently there is only a total of granted (extant) planning permissions for 26,580 units, resulting in a shortfall of 8,853 units over the five-year period.
