Details Published By CSO Of New Housing Units Completed In 2022


The CSO has published details of new housing units completed in 2022. The data is compiled based on ESB connections with adjustments made for reconnections. The government is welcoming the delivery of 29,851 new dwellings last year.  This represents a 45.2% increase on 2021, when 20,560 new dwellings were completed. It the highest annual total since the CSO began collecting this housing data 2011.

The data reveals how many completions there were in Tipperary Local Electoral Areas in 2022:

Thurles LEA reports 82 new dwellings, Cashel Tipperary 68, Nenagh 60, Carrick on Suir 56, Clonmel 46, Newport 41, Cahir 39 and Roscrea Templemore 38.

The new dwellings could be an apartment, a single house or a unit in a housing estate. On average the data shows that homes are ¾ of the size of homes constructed in 2016 due to a combination of increased apartment construction and reductions in the size of single or estate houses.

Housing for All, the Government’s housing plan, had a target of 24,600 new homes in 2022 – the target for 2023 is 29,000.

The delivery of new social housing units in 2022 is measured at approximately 6,500.

Minister for Housing Darragh O’Brien says the government is open to introducing new measures where needed to address barriers to the delivery of all types of housing.
