Affordable Housing Scheme – Greenhill Road, Wicklow Town, Wicklow

Wicklow County Council Affordable Housing Scheme

Wicklow County Council has launched its first Affordable Housing Scheme in Greenhill Road, Wicklow Town, Co. Wicklow. 

The Affordable Housing Scheme makes local homes available at a reduced price for first-time buyers, and Fresh Start applicants, whose combined mortgage and deposit will not cover the market price of the newly built home.

Through the scheme, Wicklow County Council takes a percentage equity stake (share of the ownership) in the home equal to the difference between the open market value of the property and the reduced price paid by the purchaser.

The application portal will open on 9th January 2023 at 9.00am.

Please note that where the number of eligible applicants exceeds the number of affordable dwellings for which applications are made, applications will be prioritised in accordance with Wicklow County Council’s Scheme of Priority. Applications will be processed on a first come, first serve basis.
