Despite the fanfare around announcing the new Housing For All plan, there's still no increase in the income limits for people wishing to apply for social housing.
That's according to Westport Independent Councillor Christy Hyland.
The Housing for All plan, launched by Government earlier this month, contains 230 action points, but Councillor Hyland says it's disappointing that the income bands for social housing remain unchanged for the past ten years.
A couple with 2 children earning in excess over €27,500 or a single person earning over €25,000 cannot qualify for social housing.
Speaking with Midwest News Councillor Hyland said the income limits need to be adjusted in line with inflation.
