Over 500 new social homes are under construction in Laois right now in 21 different locations.
They will make a dent in the growing housing waiting list, with 1,761 people and families now relying on Laois County Council to provide housing to them.
Here are the latest timelines and locations provided by the council. The schemes include those being built by Approved Housing Bodies, who will retain ownership but then lease them to the council to place their chosen tenants. Turnkey developments are homes that are built by private developers with an agreement that the council buys them once fully completed. Laois County Council will select the tenants for all developments from their waiting list.
