NABCO welcomes publication of regulation code for Irish Approved Housing Bodies

At an event in Dublin today, Minister for Housing and Planning, Jan O’Sullivan T.D., officially launced ‘Building for the Future, a Voluntary Regulation Code for Approved Housing Bodies’.  The publication can be downloaded here.

Speaking at the launch, NABCO Chief Executive, Dr. Niall O’Keeffe, said: “the co-operative housing movement has been calling for some time for an agreed framework for regulating the co-operative and voluntary housing sectors.  This code will provide partners with the confidence they need to invest in our sector’s ambitious plans for the future.”

NABCO’s President, Declan Hudson, said: “members of co-operatives and tenants of voluntary housing associations are entitled to know that their organisations are being run in a way that is fair, accountable and sustainable.  This code is an important tool to help make that happen.”
