Co-living developments to be banned by Minster for Housing

Words: Katie Gartland

The current co-living guidelines allow for bedrooms as small as disabled parking spaces.

Minister for Housing Darragh O’Brien will issue a ban on new co-living developments today. The Taoiseach previously described co-living as a “glorified tenement”

The Minister told officials he was worried about the number of applications for co-living developments. According to The Irish Times, he is reviewing former Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy’s 2018 guidelines for co-living.

The 2018 guidelines allow for bedrooms as small as a disabled parking space, 12sq m. 5 co-living applications have been approved so far this year.
