Modular homes are to be used as permanent housing under new plans from Dublin City Council.
Homeless famiies moved into the first modular estate of 22 houses at Poppintree in Ballymun last Ma, and were given 6 months licences rather that the usual council tenancey agreement.
This was to allow the council to move the family on to permanent accommodation once it became available.
However due housing crisis the council has been unable to find homes for the families.
Now according to the Irish Times the council's housing department will present proposals to councillors in the coming weeks.
They'll recommend families who are moved into rapid build housing should be given permanent tenancies for that home.
Four more modular estates are under construction at Finglas, Darndale, Cherry Orchard and Drimnagh.
