Among these future projects are 30 social housing units planned for Station Road, Kildare Town, and a single unit designated for Maddenstown Terrace in The Curragh.

Initiatives such as the Coolaghknock Glebe development in Kildare Town are set to offer a blend of 99 social housing units and 32 affordable housing options.
