Over 10,000 copies of my new four page newsletter are in the process of being delivered to homes across the Dundrum Local Electoral Area. The full newsletter is reproduced below. As you can see it’s mainly focused on the corporate takeover of housing across Dundrum, Windy Arbour, Ballinteer, Sandyford, Stillorgan, Leopardstown and the surrounding areas.
Since 2013 a handful of foreign corporations have taken ownership of 2,200 homes in these communities, amounting to about one in sixteen homes of the total housing stock. Over the same time period, rents have increased by a staggering 70% and are now at their highest level ever. Rents in the Dundrum Local Electoral Area are now the second highest in the entire state.
This is the reality of Shane Ross and Fine Gael’s ‘solution’ to the housing crisis; a rapidly expanding Build To Rent sector which is driving the crisis in both the rental and purchase sectors.
