To ask the Minister for Housing; Planning and Local Government the proposed location of the headquarters of the regeneration and development agency; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
Together with the Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform, I signed the Establishment Order for the Land Development Agency (LDA) on 13 September 2018.
The Establishment Order is an initial and enabling measure to get the LDA up and running as quickly as possible, ahead of the provision of a more comprehensive primary legislative basis for the Agency and its intended scope of powers and operations. As is common in Agency start-ups of this kind, the Land Development Agency is currently operating from temporary offices. These are located at Sir John Rogerson's Quay, Dublin. A decision on the location of more permanent accommodation will be made in advance of enactment of the primary legislation next year.
