Social housing in Paris as defined by the SRU Law © Apur

The Law on Solidarity and Urban Renewal (SRU) of 13th December 2000 set a target for municipalities of a certain size, to achieve a percentage of social rental housing among the total number of main residences. In Ile-de-France, this applies to all municipalities with at least 1,500 inhabitants which according to the population census, are in a conglomeration or a Public Inter-municipal Co-operation Establishment with its independent tax system, with over 50,000 inhabitants, including at least on municipality of over 15,000 inhabitants. Within Paris, this objective is also applied on the scale of municipalities (and not of districts - arrondissements -).

The target to be reached was 20% of social housing among main residences, until the law of 18th January 2013 raised the target to 25% and set the end of 2025 as the final deadline for achieving this.

On 1st January 2019, according to the inventory of social housing as defined by the SRU Law, Paris had 250,618 social housing units which represented 21.4% of main residences at that date (1,172,169 main residences on 1st January 2019, source DGFiP). The parcels of land on which this housing is located are shown on the map.
