 Notification of Social Housing Assessment 2021

21 September 2021

Clare County Council is currently preparing a Summary Social Housing Needs Assessment 2021 in accordance with Section 21 of the Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009.

All Local Authorities are required by the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government to complete this assessment for all persons who have applied for social housing support.

The purpose of the Assessment is to capture the total number of households qualified for social housing support across the county whose social housing need is not being met, in order to understand the level of need for such support.

This Council is contacting certain applicants who have applied for social housing support prior to 30th July, 2020, to confirm that they still require social housing support. Each applicant must confirm their requirements to the Council by completing the assessment form which has been issued. Applicants who have applied after 30th July, 2020, will not be written to as your file has recently been assessed so there is no need to contact the Council unless there is a change in circumstances.

Transfer applicants, HAP and RAS tenants are not included in this assessment.

Please return your form by post if possible in the pre-paid envelope provided no later than Friday, 1st October, 2021, to ensure that your application is included in this assessment.

All forms returned to the Council will be assessed to ensure that each applicant has a continuing need for social housing support. It is most important that forms are completed in full with all relevant information.

If an applicant no longer requires social housing support or is no longer eligible their file will be closed.

It will be assumed that applicants who do not return their Social Housing Assessment Forms are no longer interested /in need of social housing support and their file will be closed.

If you have any questions, please contact the Housing Department on (065) 6846572 or (065) 6846403.
