Notification of Social Housing Assessment 2016

Fingal County Council is currently preparing a Social Housing Assessment Summary in accordance with Section 21 of the Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009.

All Local Authorities are required by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government to complete this assessment for all persons who have applied for social housing support.

The purpose of the Assessment is to capture the total number of households qualified for social housing support across the county whose social housing need is not being met, in order to understand the level of need for such support.

This Council is contacting all applicants who have applied for social housing support prior to the 21st of September 2015 to confirm that they still require social housing support. Each applicant must confirm their requirement to the Council by completing the assessment form which has been issued. Applicants who have applied after the 21st of September 2015 will not be written to as your file has recently been assessed so there is no need to contact the Council unless there is a change in circumstances.

Please return your form no later than Friday, 19th August 2016 so you will continue to be included on the list for social housing support.

Forms can be returned by post or in person at the following locations:

Fingal County Council, Civic Offices, Grove Road, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15, D15 W638
Opening Hours: Monday to Thursday 9.30AM to 4.30PM Friday 9.30AM to 4PM


Fingal County Council, County Hall, Main Street, Swords, Co. Dublin, K67 X8Y2
Opening Hours: Monday to Thursday 9AM to 5PM Friday 9AM – 4.30PM


Balbriggan Fingal County Council Office, 2nd Floor, Town Hall, Georges Square, Balbriggan, K32 X597
Opening hours: Monday to Thursday 9AM to 5PM Friday 9AM to 4.30PM *Closed from 1PM to 2PM*

All forms returned to the Council will be assessed to ensure that each applicant has a continuing need for social housing support. If an applicant no longer requires social housing support or is no longer eligible their file will be closed.

It will be assumed that applicants who do not return their Social Housing Assessment Forms are no longer interested/in need of social housing support and their file will be closed.

List position letters will be issued to all eligible housing applicants following full completion of the Social Housing Assessment 2016. It is expected that this will happen before the end of the year.

Fingal County Council would like to thank you in advance for your co-operation.
