Petition: Develop Damastown as a new social & affordable community

Solidarity - The Left Alternative have come up with a ambitious, positive proposal to develop 1,135 social & affordable homes in Damastown, Mulhuddart to begin to resolve the housing crisis. Fingal has 22% of the population of Dublin, but 35% of the homeless population - we need action now!

Our proposal contains 835 houses and 300 apartments. Nearly 80 four beds, 413 three beds, 550 two beds and nearly 100 one bed units.

50% will be ring-fenced for social housing and the other 50% will be available on an Affordable Mortgage Scheme.

We want this development to be funded from Fingal's capital budget and investment from the Department of the Environment & the Housing Agency.
