The Enhanced Long Term Social Housing Leasing Scheme is one of a suite of measures introduced under Pillar 2 of Rebuilding Ireland: An Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness. This new initiative represents an expansion of the options available to Cork City Council for the delivery of social housing. Properties will be leased from the private sector and used to accommodate households from the waiting list.
Further details on the operation of the scheme are provided in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document below for the assistance of applicants on the waiting list. Applicants should ensure they read this document prior to expressing an interest on any available leasing properties advertised on the Choice Based Letting (CBL) system so they understand how this will differ from a tenancy in a property owned by Cork City Council.
