housing leasing in the Athy area.
Under the Social Housing Investment Programme, the Rental Accommodation Scheme and Social Housing Leasing Initiative are the primary mechanisms for the delivery of housing support in the county. The housing department are working closely with private landlords, the voluntary housing sector, Athy Town Council and other interested parties for the sustainable delivery of units. The delivery of units is being carefully coordinated in the context of housing need and good estate management, measured against the resources available to deliver these services in the overall context of the needs of the entire County.
