About Us


Land Development Agency

 The LDA is a commercial, State-sponsored body that has been created to coordinate land within State control for more optimal uses where appropriate, with a focus on the provision of housing.

The LDA will improve the way the housing market functions by:

  • Working with State bodies and Local Authorities to make more effective use of State lands, providing a stable, sustainable supply of land for housing.
  • Improving the planning system to facilitate State lands being used for housing.
  • Acquiring and developing land in a selective, targeted way that boosts housing supply.
  • Delivering rental market initiatives that provide affordable mass-market tenure.
  • Investing in research and innovation to identify new and better ways to deliver new homes.
