This was revealed after a question by Fianna Fáil Cllr Johnnie Wall at Monday’s meeting of the Tralee MD of Kerry County Council, where he asked has the Council enough land in the area for future housing projects.

In reply, the Council said there are five active sites where 162 social housing units are currently under construction.

They are in Balloonagh where 28 homes will be delivered this year; Ardfert, 22 units delivered in Q1 2021; Ballyrickard, 21 homes delivered in Q4 2021; Lohercannon, 61 homes due by Q2 2022 and Croogorts where 30 homes are scheduled to be ready by Q1 2022.

Tender documents are being prepared for eight units at Rahoonane to be delivered in Q2 2022.

The preliminary designs for an Island of Geese development are being looked at and a post-2022 delivery date is penned in.

The Council said it has a land portfolio throughout the county and this is being examined in relation to future needs and the provision of social housing. The Council will have some need for additional land for the Housing Programme post 2022 and this is under review.
