Housing, Local Government and Heritage | Addressing the number of applicants on housing lists

To ask the Minister for Housing; Local Government and Heritage the number of applicants on the various housing lists held by the various local authorities nationwide as of 1 January 2023; and if he will make a statement on the matter.


Details on the number of households qualified for social housing support in each local authority area is provided in the annual Summary of Social Housing Assessments (SSHA). The most recently published summary for all counties, conducted in November 2021, is available at:

While the average waiting time per local authority list is not captured, details on the length of time spent on the respective lists local authority are included in tables 2.8 and A1.8 in the report.

I expect the 2022 SSHA report to be available towards end-February.
