The Commissioning Prospectus
The Housing Executive is currently developing the Commissioning Prospectus to provide housing associations, developers and other interested stakeholders detailed information about the requirements for the provision of new social and affordable housing throughout Northern Ireland.
In particular, the prospectus will present data which will enable housing associations to make informed decisions about where to search for land and property to deliver new social and affordable housing within assessed housing need and strategic targets.
The prospectus will form an integral part of the Social Housing Development Programme (SHDP) approved by the Minister (Department for Communities), identifying areas where there is a shortage of acquired development sites where the Housing Executive would welcome suitable scheme proposals.
The prospectus will be updated and published annually (January) to reflect the most recent assessment of local market issues and unmet housing needs. Please note also that our Regional Place Shaping Teams are available to discuss any site specific queries; provide any additional details or further information that you may require.
