About Us

The LDA will improve the way the housing market functions by:

  • Working with State bodies and local authorities to make more effective use of State lands, providing a stable, sustainable supply of land for housing.
  • Improving the planning system to facilitate State lands being used for housing.
  • Acquiring and developing land in a selective, targeted way that boosts housing supply.
  • Delivering rental market initiatives that provide affordable mass-market tenure.
  • Investing in research and innovation to identify new and better ways to deliver new homes.
  • Providing high-level expertise underpinned by robust governance.

We are supported by three pillars:

01.

Permanent Capitalisation

The Government has committed to the long-term funding of the Land Development Agency.

02.

Access to land

Urban and rural sites across the country will be assessed for the purposes of development.

03.

Support of a dedicated team

Industry experts will ensure the viability of sites around Ireland and support innovation in the housing and rental markets.
