Dublin City Council Housing Assessment 2020

25th September, 2020

Dublin City Council has begun the process of preparing a new Housing Needs Assessment for 2020.


The first step in this is the writing to housing applicants earlier this month to establish the status of your current circumstances and whether you still require alternative housing. The correspondence sent by the Council includes a Social Housing Assessment form which needs to be completed and returned to Housing Allocations and Transfers, Housing & Residential Services, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8. The deadline for the return of this form is September 29th next.


For those who haven’t returned their completed assessment form, Dublin City Council will write, in early October, to remind applicants of their need to complete the documentation. Dublin City Council, will if it does not receive your completed Housing Assessment, remove your application from the housing waiting list. Please do not let this happen, so I urge you to complete the form and return it to the City Council as quickly as possible.


Not everyone on the housing list will be included in the assessment, so if you fall into any the below categories, you will not have received any communication:

  • Any households that have been assessed and qualified for support or reviewed since April 10th
  • Applicants with a known disability or in emergency accommodation.
  • Transfer applicants.


If you do not fall into any of these categories and have not received communication from Dublin City Council in respect of the Housing Assessment 2020, please get in touch with me so that I can follow up on the matter for you.


Should there be any local or national matter where I can be of help, please contact myself, or Councillors Ray McAdam, Naoise O’Muiri and Colm O’Rourke so that we can assist in whatever way we can.
