Summary of Social Housing Assessment 2016 (HNA)
We have been informed by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government that each Housing Authority is required to prepare a Summary of the Social Housing Assessments (s.21 Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009) carried out in its administrative area. This Summary was last carried out in April 2013 and will now be carried out on 21st September 2016. Housing Authorities are required to assess all applications for social housing supports in accordance with the Assessment Regulations.
This statutory Assessment will identify the number of qualified households on our Housing List whose housing need have not been met. This list does not include those households on a transfer list or in accommodation provided under RAS or HAP.
This undertaking of the Summary of Assessment must be completed and returned to the Department of Environment on or before the 12th October 2016 and will present additional challenges for the Housing Department.
This is the last of the three year full Housing Needs Assessment and will be replaced by an Annual Assessment starting in 2017. Kilkenny County Council will contact all approved social housing clients in the coming months.Advertisement will be placed in the local papers and on our web-site to inform the public of the Assessment Process.
