A new report published today by the government’s advisory body on housing, the Housing Agency, has projected the level of housing needed across the country in the next five years.

It predicts that Mullingar will require 799 units as its population grows from the 2011 figure of 20,103 to 21,559 in 2018.

The report forecasts a minimum required supply of 79,660 residential units in urban areas to support the population between 2014 and 2018, an average equivalent of 15,932.
The per annum requirement across the country ranges from 9,526 units in 2014 to 20,853 units in 2018.

Some 47% (37,581 units) of total supply over the five-year period is required in the Dublin region, averaging 7,500 units per year. The figures show there is an immediate supply requirement of 5,663 units in 2014, which rises to a per annum requirement of 8,970 units in 2018.
