Major drop in the number of unfinished developments

Hundreds of unfinished developments remain, despite three quarters drop on 2010 figures

There has been a 75% drop in the amount of unfinished developments.

There were nearly 3,000 in 2010 - this dropped to 668 this year, but a further 324 have been resolved during 2015.

The Department of the Environment will engage with the relevant local authorities and stakeholders to explore options on the future viability of unoccupied unfinished developments, where there is little potential of them being reactivated and becoming economically viable.
