“The pilot programme which we are launching today is addressed to Polish families, young people, to the middle class; all those who want to have their own home, need these homes, in order to think about the future of their family,” Prime Minister Beata Szydło told a press conference on Wednesday, adding that the programme would start with a pilot in 17 Polish towns and cities.
Outlining this programme earlier this year, Szydło said that these apartments “will originally be available for rent, and we plan the cost for rent to be around PLN 10-20 per square metre [a month]”.
The figure is the equivalent of around EUR 2.28-4.56 per metre a month, meaning that a 60-metre apartment will cost as little as EUR 137 to rent.
The programme is a flagship project by the Law and Justice (PiS) government, which won the October 2015 Polish elections. (rg)
