Fewer lifts and car parking spaces are among planned changes to apartment standards.

The government wants to make them a more attractive option so that they can help solve the housing crisis.

 

The Housing Minister has published three new reports into the cost of delivering housing.

Eoghan Murphy's department has looked at design standards city properties and affordable homes in the region of 240-thousand to 320-thousand euro.

One report proposes lifting building restrictions to allow apartment blocks to rise to ten storeys in strategic areas.

It's also claimed reducing the need for lifts and car parking spaces would entice more developers to build.

The Department is also questioning the need for recreation space above 10 percent of the total site.
