Policy Consultancy

Context and Actions

The housing market in Ireland has experienced a lot of interventions in recent years. Unfortunately, the supply demand imbalance remains. We have attempted to break down the demand into it’s component parts and simplistically we need homes of all typographies and tenures for private, rental and social occupiers.

In the infographic we have set out the supply and demand context and some proposed actions.

Policy consultancy

Government policy and direction has always played a key role in both residential and commercial property. At Sherry FitzGerald, we have a dedicated team continuously analysing and assessing policy at a local and national level. 

And, by engaging with all stakeholders at all levels of government on an ongoing basis, we see the complete picture and can advise you on how to maximise your commercial property investment against the back drop of a changing and evolving government policy.

We understand local authorities

Different regions have different priorities and our comprehensive understanding of local authorities and how they work ensure we can equip you with the insight you need to make informed commercial decisions. 

Technical know-how

On development projects, issues can often arise as a result of stringent administrative and red tape requirements. With many years’ experience behind us, we have the technical know-how and hands-on knowledge to identify any issues and resolve them out in good time. With a complete understanding of national initiatives like the National Planning Framework, we know what is required and can advise you accordingly.

Continuously engaging with all stakeholders

In a constantly changing property market, it is essential we stay connected and keep communicating with all stakeholders. From county engineers & senior ministers, to officials & the RTB, we work hard to keep the lines of communication open and clear, providing us with the latest insight and understanding to guide you through what can be a complex area.
