Council To Carry Out Assessment Of Housing List

528

Selected Social Housing Applicants in Tipperary will have to declare if they wish to remain on the local authority housing list as part of a Department of Housing assessment to determine a true and accurate need across the country. Tipperary County Council will be writing to all relevant applicants to confirm their current housing need and they will be required to submit the completed application form.

Applicants will also be requested to submit supporting documentation in the event of a change of circumstances including evidence of income since they were last assessed. All applicants must return the form by Monday 12th September, 2022. Based on the data collected the Department of Housing will set targets for future housing delivery by Tipperary county council. 

The council is warning that failure to return the fully completed SSHA 2022 form, along with relevant documentation, will result in the file being closed and the applicant being removed from the housing list.

Those assessed as part of the SSHA in 2021 will not be included in this year’s review. Also, all HAP tenants, RAS tenants and applicants for a social housing transfer are also excluded.

All applicants must return the form by Monday 12th September, 2022 to the Housing section of Tipperary County Council in either the Clonmel or Nenagh Civic offices.
