Stop Dublin City Council's Land Giveaway - Build Homes Instead!

category dublin | housing | event notice author Friday May 06, 2016 23:53author by D7HousingAction - D7HousingAction Report this post to the editors

We want Dublin City Council to stop the giveaway of public land to private developers under the Housing Land Initiative.

As part of the 'Housing Land Initiative' Dublin City Council is threatening to hand land across Dublin - in O'Devaney Garden, St. Michael's Estate and Oscar Traynor Road -over to private developers.
We Want to Stop This.

Help us protest public land and housing across our city.
Protest - Dublin City Hall on Monday May 9th 5pm

Stop Dublin City Council's Land Giveaway - Build Homes Instead!

As part of the 'Housing Land Initiative' Dublin City Council is threatening to hand land
across Dublin - in O'Devaney Garden, St. Michael's Estate and Oscar Traynor Road -over to private developers.
We Want to Stop This.

Help us protest public land and housing across our city

Public land should be used to tackle the housing crisis - not given over to developers to build private housing which is not affordable to the majority.

Why is this important?

Ireland is facing an unprecedented housing crisis - one that has been driven and worsened by private developers who work for profit, not the public good.

Now, yet again, our council is seeking to fix the housing crisis by giving handouts to developers. Under the current Dublin City Council Housing Land Initiative, public land in three sites across Dublin will be turned over, free of charge, to private property developers. The proposal depends on high-interest finance.

Banks, not the public, will benefit from this model that is based, at best, in a naive faith in the efficiency of privatization or, at worst, in cronyism.

Cross-subsidized housing is a sustainable alternative where local government develops housing directly. Rent is based on ability-to-pay, and tenants benefit from rents that are below market rate, and enjoy security of tenure should their fortunes change. Similar schemes already operate successfully in Vienna and Singapore.

Please sign our petition to call on Dublin City Council to support this sustainable model for public housing, not the giveaway of public land.

Venue:
Protest - Dublin City Hall

When:
Monday, May 9 at 5pm
