Housing in Northern Ireland


Housing in Northern Ireland


Peter Shanks and David Mullins



What's inside

Northern Ireland's housing market is very distinctive and it is the only part of the UK which shares features of its market with an adjoining republic. The pattern of housing investment has also been different, with a long period in which the public sector invested strongly as one of the key social programmes intended to help reduce social inequalities and work towards resolving Northern Ireland's political conflicts. Even now, while public investment has been reduced, housing associations play a more prominent role in new supply than is the case in the rest of the UK.

The publication includes chapters on:

  • Social housing policy in Northern Ireland under devolution 1999-2015
  • The Housing Executive
  • From the margins to the mainstream: What next for the housing association sector?
  • The private rented sector in Northern Ireland
  • Housing market affordability in Northern Ireland
  • Housing conditions transformed
  • Land-use planning in Northern Ireland
  • Affluence, mobility, and ownership of second homes
  • Segregation, territory and housing policy
  • Race and housing in Northern Ireland
  • Housng and communities' inequalities in Northern Ireland
  • Supporting People partnerships in Northern Ireland
  • Housing policy in Northern Ireland and across the UK
