Work ongoing on SDCC affordable housing development

by Rachel Cunningham

Work is progressing on South Dublin County Council’s (SDCC) joint venture development of 1,034 homes in Kilcarbery, Clondalkin, writes Rachel Cunningham.

Approximately 250 homes are under construction on-site, with the first social homes due for completion in the second quarter of 2022.

Seventy four cost rental homes are due for completion in the middle of the year, along with 16 affordable or discounted homes. A further 600 private homes will include a range of three and four-bed houses, in addition to one, two and three-bed apartments.

SDCC has described the Kilcarbery development project as an effort to “deliver affordable homes in South Dublin County”, with 60 per cent of the development projected to sell for an average of €250,000 or less per home and another 20 per cent slotted to be delivered as social housing.

During a visit to the site in 2021, Minister Darragh O’Brien commended the development, stating: “This mixed tenure development which will provide 310 social homes, reflects the government’s commitment to providing homes for families in their area of choice further empowering people to stay in their communities and safeguard the quality of life for all who live within them. Schemes such as this one here in Kilcarbery are exactly what we want to see replicated across the country, delivering a mix of homes, built to a very high standard, at affordable prices.”
