CSO data shows positive growth in planning permissions
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.”
