The Workers’ Party today (Monday May 9th) published Solidarity Housing: Getting the vultures out of Irish Housing, a costed proposal for multi-income public housing which is intended to address three issues: the current high costs to the state of public housing provision; the high costs of market rents which are placing an unsustainable burden on many households; and the social segregation and marginalisation which characterise many public housing developments.
Speakers at today’s press conference included housing campaigner Fr Peter McVerry and lone parents advocate Louise Bayliss (S.P.A.R.K. / Single Parents Acting for the Rights of their Kids), as well as Workers’ Party representatives Cllr. Eilis Ryan (Dublin Central) and Jimmy Dignam (Dublin Northwest).
