Dublin City Council

 

Dublin City Council seeks to enhance the city’s attractiveness as a place in which to invest, to work, to live and to visit. It takes a leading role in shaping the strategic vision for the city.

It provides a broad range of services and infrastructure to both citizens and visitors to Dublin to sustain the life of the city. These services include the provision of housing, planning, development, environmental, roads and traffic, fire and emergency, leisure and community services. Many of these services, including water, drainage, fire and emergency services are provided on a regional basis for the Greater Dublin area.

The Land Development Agency

 

The LDA is a commercial, State-sponsored body that has been created to coordinate land within State control for more optimal uses where appropriate, with a focus on the provision of housing.

The LDA will improve the way the housing market functions by:

  • Working with State bodies and Local Authorities to make more effective use of State lands, providing a stable, sustainable supply of land for housing.
  • Improving the planning system to facilitate State lands being used for housing.
  • Acquiring and developing land in a selective, targeted way that boosts housing supply.
  • Delivering rental market initiatives that provide affordable mass-market tenure.
  • Investing in research and innovation to identify new and better ways to deliver new homes.
