01 July 2016 – BRegs Weekly 20- edition 70

Welcome to the latest Weekly BRegs Weekly for 2016: edition 70 of BRegs Weekly is out now.

This week saw reaction to the Oireachtas Homeless and Housing Committee report published on 17th June 2016. Professor Lorcan Sirr in his weekly Sunday Times Column commended the committee for their efforts but said the hard work now faces policy makers to extract meaningful actionable targets from the many issues raised.

Brexit shock currently occupies much of media at present and effects on Ireland’s building industry figure prominently.

Dáil exchanges this week give an insight into the considered opinions of both Ministers Coveney and English concerning the provision of social housing, and the reaction of Ministers and Oireachtas Housing Committee members to submissions made by industry on housing costs.

Elsewhere elected city councillors intend to seek legal advice following a decision by the Dublin City council’s executive to overrule a motion putting enhanced building standards in the city development plan.

The BRegs Weekly e-zine gathers all recent social media discussions relating to Building Control Regulations into one weekly digest. It is published every Friday and gives a round-up of news highlights for the week.

We recommend signing up for an automatic subscription to keep up with the discussion surrounding the current annual review of the BC(A)R, and more recent media articles and stories about building control and the impacts on the consumer and construction industry.

All the actions and duties identified in the Act as pertaining to ‘the Minister’ are further clarified as ‘the Minister for the Environment’. If there is no such Minister, who may carry out these duties?
