Council agree to temporary but regular series of meetings with Rosconnell Residents Association

Here is a joint motion myself, Cllrs Doyle & Pender had at this Months (15th March) MD Meeting;

That the council agree to a temporary but regular series of meetings, on site with Rosconnell Residents Association, similar to that which happens in Dara Park, to address ongoing issues in the area. We propose a monthly meeting for the first three months to deal with urgent issues followed by at least another two bi-monthly meetings until urgent issues have been addressed. The meetings should be attended by key officials from relevant departments, municipal district councillors and the committee of Rosconnell Residents Association together with the Community Development Worker.

Issues requiring immediate attention include but are not limited to the following:
– dumping around the estate
– the selection of tenants for council accommodation
– lighting in the estate
– the most effective use for both workers and Rossconnell residents of the Gateway
Scheme
– maintenance snag list
Report Issued by: Ms. A Conneely , Community and Enterprise Development Officer : Doreen Daly Community Worker for the Kildare/Newbridge Municipal District is working with the Residents Committee in Rosconnell and will continue to facilitate and support them in carrying out their programme of activities for the coming year.
