CSO data shows positive growth in planning permissions

June 10, 2022

Commenting on the latest Central Statistics Office data on planning permissions, Director of Property Industry Ireland, Dr. David Duffy said: “Today’s data shows welcome annual growth in planning permissions of 21.5% in Quarter 1, 2022. This suggests a strong ambition for the delivery of new homes.   

“Planning permissions over the last year have risen to an annual total of 44,491 homes. However, following recent trends a large proportion of these could be subjected to Judicial Review, particularly Strategic Housing Development applications. This will delay the commencement and completion of many homes.”
