Chapter 6: Housing

The  County Council  should  include a policy to provide  Independent living for  the elderly in Rathcoole , Saggart and Newcastle , areas that have the oldest  populations in South County Dublin , and , in doing so  to satisfy the growing demand for   downsizing from existing residences to more suitable accommodation  for their needs with access to local amenities . This will have the added benefit of releasing housing stock used by single or small families to larger families and assisting with the homeless situation in the area


This Council agrees that the Housing Officer liaises with Agencies such as the HSE, Department of Education . Age  Friendly Ireland   and voluntary organisations such as the Four Districts Day Care  CLG,  a local Charity that has almost 40 years of experience in dealing with the elderly . This to be aligned  to the Age Friendly County Strategy 2020-24 launched in September 2020
