Kildare County Council is seeking to establish the level of interest in potential affordable housing in specific areas throughout the county.

The follows the publication of an ambitious Housing Delivery Action Plan in 2022, Kildare County Council is progressing with plans for the supply of affordable housing in Kildare for the coming years.

An Affordable Housing Survey has been launched, inviting those who meet the affordable housing criteria to have their say on their preferred area.

This information will establish a register of provisional interest in affordable housing provided by Kildare County Council and inform the delivery of affordable homes by Kildare County Council in the coming years.
