AON Meeting 5 December: Short-Lets in Apartments & MUDs

Hello all,

Our final meeting of a very busy 2017 takes place on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at 7pm. We are back in our regular spot of the Wood Quay Venue, Dublin City Council.

We have arranged a discussion on short term lettings, and issues for OMCs. This is in light of the Department of Housing’s recent Circular “Guidance on Planning Applications for Short Term Lettings”.

The intention is to hear members’ views and to gauge opinion.

Frank McDonald, former Environment Editor of the Irish Times and chair of Temple Bar Residents, has kindly agreed to attend and contribute to the discussion. Temple Bar Residents took the recent landmark planning case on short-lets, details here-

Those intending to come to the meeting are encouraged to read the Circular-

We will update you on the range of our work in October and November. Our usual open forum will conclude the meeting.

As usual we will have Tea, coffee and sandwiches available from 6.45pm. The meeting will begin at 7pm sharp.

To assist us in planning the meeting, please let us know if you plan to attend using our Meeting Attendance form.

Directions to the meeting venue if you need them are available here.


Our recent submissions on Census 2021 housing/accommodation questions, and the draft National Planning Framework are on the website-

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 5 December!

AON Submission – Dept of Finance, Budget 2018

We have made a submission to the Department of Finance in relation to Budget 2018 outlining our proposals regarding budgetary and other measures, that should be implemented by Government to support the Multi Unit Development / Apartment sector into the future.

In this submission targeted taxation and other measures are put forward in order to defuse
the financial time bomb facing MUD / Apartment OMCs. Our proposals promote the sound
management of the most rapidly growing component of the national housing stock.

Other financial supports and legislative changes are suggested to improve the operation
and governance of the sector.

A copy of our submission is available to view at the link below.
