Public Consultation – A Strategy for the Rented Sector

Why are we launching a consultation?

The Government is committed to the development of a Rental Strategy, to be completed by the end of 2016.  The strategy will provide a vision of the role that the rental sector will play in the short, medium and long terms, in the context of the Government’s objectives for the housing sector overall as set out in Rebuilding Ireland.

Work has started on the development of the Strategy, but this needs to be informed by the views and suggestions of a wide range of groups and individuals.
