A Kildare councillor says the local authority long-term leasing scheme "is going to be a huge problem".
Kildare County Council is to rent, for a period of around 25 years, 61 houses in Leixlip.
It is also renting 49 homes in Johnstown, which are under construction.
Social Democrats Cllr., Nuala Kileen, says this government programme is a short sighted approach.
Cllr.Kileen joined Clem Ryan on this morning's edition of Kildare Today.
