On foot of a commitment made by Simon Coveney T.D., Minister for Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government, to review the Rent Pressure Zone (RPZ) measure, the Rental Market and AHB Regulation Section of the Department is carrying out a review to examine the operation of the measure to date and put forward options, if and where appropriate, for amendments to the measure. 

The Review will be carried out by the Department in conjunction with the key participants in the RPZ designation process, namely the Housing Agency and the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB).  Input from interested parties on these matters is welcomed and this focused consultation paper has been prepared to inform and assist in gathering these views.
