In 2019, for the first time, more apartments than houses were granted planning permission. In 2019, 62.4% of the apartments granted planning permission were via Strategic Housing Development (SHD) applications. This is where applications for developments of at least 100 residential units or 200 plus student bed spaces can be made directly to An Bord Pleanála. Permissions were granted for 3,965 new houses and 12,841 new apartment units via SHD applications in 2019.
