How data on vacancy is created and used

CATEGORY: Research CLIENT: National Housing Agency YEAR: 2018-19 LINK: - How data is vacancy created and used

Ireland has no comprehensive system for generating data on how space is used.


We researched examples of how vacancy is identified in Scotland, Denmark and the USA (Philadelphia), setting out how this informs policies and actions, particularly in relation to housing.


The report has been widely disseminated and presented directly to the Environmental Protection Agency, Government and Ministers. This has resulted in vacancy being included for monitoring in the Strategic Environmental Assessment for Ireland (EU).
