Wexford County Council is currently prioritising housing programmes for delivery. As part of a range of housing solutions, the housing authority is currently seeking expressions of interest from private developers, building contractors and land owners.
Interested parties should be capable of delivering social housing units within the County and have housing proposals or turnkey developments available.
Current housing demand is prioritised within the urban areas of Wexford, Gorey, Enniscorthy and New Ross which address current demand in these zoned areas. Developments of 5 social housing units or greater will be considered. Expressions of interest for other areas will be considered but not prioritised.
In particular Wexford County Council is seeking in order of priority:-
- Turnkey developments. Acquisitions are on a turnkey basis; potential payment is a fixed price lump sum, on completion of a development, within an agreed timeframe.
- Mixed development schemes where social residential components could be incorporated into them.
All developments and associated works must be fully compliant with the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government guidelines and standards. A formal pre-planning discussion with Wexford County Council’s Planning section will need to have been held prior to proposal being submitted to the Housing Department.
Wexford County Council are also seeking proposals for the delivery of adapted dwellings to meet the requirements of those with specific needs.
A preliminary proposal via the official application form will need to be submitted along with required documentation regarding the development proposed.
Application forms must be received in by 5pm on Friday 30th July 2021, in order to allow for consideration of all proposals received. Application forms and accompanying explanatory documents should be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
