Social Democrats Housing spokesperson and Dublin Bay North TD, Cian O’Callaghan, has welcomed the Government’s reversal of the co-living policy.

Deputy O’Callaghan said:

“The ban on co-living developments is long overdue. The Government must now draw a line in the sand under these shoddy housing policies.

“At the heart of the co-living plan was a desire to drive down standards, forcing people to live in shoeboxes so that developers could squeeze every last cent out of a site. Today’s decision by the Minister for Housing is a recognition that this was wrong.

“The Government must now fully commit to providing people with decent housing – this includes having enough personal space, good ventilation and access to a garden or balcony of your own. It is not too much to ask for and I’m glad the Minister has started to recognise that.”
