A quick look at the government's new housing strategy
I listened to Simon Coveney , the Minister for housing on RTE's Prime Time .

He said in the future there will be No More Private Housing Estates or traditional forms of housing i.e (3 bed Semis with a garden)

He also said that from now on Every Council house will have a Private house beside it and this will solve the social problems of the past in relation to council estates .

However , I dont get this idea .

Lets say you live in a Council house but the people next door live in a private house .

How is your neighbour having stuff that you dont going to help you in any way .

How is your neighbour having a good job going to help you to get a good job ?

How is your neighbour having a nice car going to help you to get a nice car ?

If your neighbours kids go to Trinity , how is that going to help your kids go to Trinity ?

If your neighbours kids are well behaved , how is that going to help your kids to be well behaved ?

Maybe its just me , maybe I'm being silly , but I really and truly cannot see how my neighbour living in a private house or having a good job or having stuff that I dont have is going thelp me in any shape or form whatsoever .

Yet , this is the new housing policy in Ireland .

It seems to me that our government just dont want to cough up the money for social housing so they hatched this plan instead .

They will use the money from the sale of the private housing to pay for the construction of the estates .

But realistically , who is going to pay for a house when you can get the one next door for free .

Mr Coveney also suggested that the Future will be apartment living . He made reference to his time living in a Brussels apartment block (not the best of examples given their problems with extremism under the noses of authorities) . but anyhow .

Apartment living is a terrible life for people with children , you have to constantly watch your children and if they go outside , you have to go with them , the only open spaces are usually car parks , bin storage areas or roof gardens , even if there is a playground you'd be mad to let your children go out there on their own .

Most people with Families want a traditional home , they want a safe little garden for their children to play , somewhere to have a BBQ in the summer , a place to relax , somewhare thats suitable for a family .

However Mr Coveney clearly stated that this kind of traditional home is now going to be a thing of the past . I think this is terrible , its going to be bad for families , bad for children and bad for everybody . (except property developers)

People must let Mr Coveney and his partners in government Know that they object to this new housing strategy , otherwise , our families and future generations are going to suffer big time.

I agree with everything the author says .

apartment living is terrible for people with children , its not healthy for them , there is no safe space for them to play . they are indoors all the time .

also , people with pets , very bad , no place for dogs or cats to live .

apartments are not for families , I think most people want to live in a house with their own private gardens.

Also , I think putting private houses beside council houses is very bad , it will cause social problems not solve any , if you see your neighbour with a brilliant job , a lovely car , and lovely possessions , you are going to want these things to , but you know you cant have them because maybe your in a low paid job or whatever , this will make some people frustrated , its like teasing people , dangliing a bone in front of them and then taking it away .

I get it now .

basically , the government need to build social housing , but instead of paying for it out of the Kitty they have come up with this brilliant idea that they will use the Money from the sale of the Private Stock to Pay for the construction of the Social stock and they also pocket the profit inbetween .

They have already stated they intend to use Foreign Developers and Workers to build their houses

they did the same with property taxes , making people pay a second time for something they already paid for , that money is being used towards paying off the loans of NAMA developers etc

their a great bunch of lads

Unfortunately for Coveney, this is the really real world.I grew up in a council estate,a sprawling mass of houses on the north side of Limerick. No public facilities,social breakdown,the full spoon.Now undergoing regeneration(at a very slow pace),it took just a couple of families to drag the whole area into purgatory,drugs and Anti social behaviour.People then take flight and the area becomes a no go zone.No sensible person is going to buy a house in Coveneys Projects,so waste of money and time.I built a house out in Co Limerick,no more land is available to build on,thank God.I want my family to avoid the environment I grew up in.Coveney is a disciple to Peter Sutherland, you know the man whose life work it has been to destroy his own country.Good luck to all auctioneers trying to sell this dream,you will earn your commission on this one.

well said mate , if anything this will cause more social problems , one neighbour might be bitter at the other because they dont have to pay a mortgage while the other neighbour might be jealous because they dont have the nice car or whatever because they cant get a decent paying job through no fault of their own , mostly because of the cheap labour economy our government have created by overpopulating us
