Part V report analyses opportunities for delivering housing

Clúid Housing today announces the publication of Planning Gain and Obligation: Promise and Performance of Part V. The report focusses on Part V of the Planning and Development Act 2000 and examines the effectiveness of this ‘planning gain’ measure in delivering social homes.

The research was compiled by Declan Redmond (Associate Professor, UCD), Mel Reynolds (Architect) and Orla Hegarty (Architect and Assistant Professor, UCD) on behalf of Clúid Housing, as part of Clúid’s Adrian Norridge Research Bursary. The report offers an analysis of the effectiveness of Part V of the Planning and Development Act 2000 and how it has operated since the major reforms made as part of the Urban Regeneration and Housing Act 2015.

The key findings from today’s report launch show that between 2002 and 2020, a total of 19,302 dwellings were provided through the Part V mechanism. Of those, 52% (9,534) were affordable purchase; 29% (5,709) local authority social rented and 19% (3,789) Approved Housing Body (AHB) rented. Over the same time, a total of 70,574 new build social rented homes were built so Part V social, rented units account for 13.4% of the total. Since the reform of Part V in 2015, it has supplied on average one fifth of new build social rented housing.
