One authority to govern Limerick-city and county

first_imgWhatsApp NewsLocal NewsOne authority to govern Limerick-city and countyBy admin – September 9, 2010 650 Advertisement Email Twitter City is dead…airport is dying, warns BrosnanA NEW unified Limerick local authority to administer the city and service a population of almost 190,000 people, has been recommended to the government by the Limerick Local Government Committee, whose chairman, Denis Brosnan, did not mince his words when, briefing the media on details of the report, he said: “Limerick needs a regeneration of its city centre more than the four housing estates involved.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Limerick needs a new authority with a new mandate to look after the social issues and that of regeneration, which doesn’t know if its mandate will be renewed in two years.“The city is dead, the airport is dying and so is the region – we are trying to turn it into a region that is going again”.The report estimates that an extension of the city boundary into the city’s suburbs in County Clare and County Limerick would create an administrative area serving 187,000 people, which would make Limerick the third biggest city in the country.Upwards of €20million per annum would be achieved in cost savings through the merging of staffing and administrative structures of both councils and the elimination of duplication and these savings would be used to support the city centre’s business environment by harmonising rates in the city centre and suburbs.The report calls for a new management structure for the Limerick Authority and the acquisition of skills and expertise required to meet Limerick’s challenges.It also stipulates that the new authority will have the resources of the third largest city in the country and service a population of 187,000, and the committee recommends that the mayor of the new authority should be elected for a five year term.Throughout the report the stark reality of the city’s deterioration is highlighted.“The relative deprivation of the city has steadily increased over the past 15 years – it is not surprising that the urban core of Limerick performs poorly in other respects as the increases in levels of deprivation occurred during the latter years of the most sustained period of economic growth that the State has experienced”.Following a continuous decline in the population within the city boundary, it now stands at approximately 52,000. All of the areas of severe deprivation are within the boundary, but, as the report points out, the population of the metropolitan area is approximately 100,000 and contains many affluent suburbs (outside the city boundary).“The exclusion of many of Limerick’s suburbs distorts the city’s statistical profile and this has a damaging impact on Limerick’s reputation and lessens the likelihood of potential investment,”  Mr Brosnan asserts.The issue of the suburbs of Shannon Banks and Westbury being included in the boundary extension, is not a stumbling block, he says.“There is no question of a plebiscite being held in Shannon Banks on this – the housing is built in Limerick city. Nobody can tell me that Shannon Banks is in Clare.“We couldn’t put 97,000 people into the city from Clare but yes, we can do so with the 3,000 in Corbally”.The report recommends that pending the 2014 elections, following the establishment of the new Limerick Authority, a mayor should be elected from the 46 members to serve until the 2014 local elections.Supporting the report’s recommendations, Limerick Chamber president, Kieran MacSweeney, said their one priority is that any changes to the local government structure will deliver a city of sufficient scale to allow it reach its full potential to become a driver of growth throughout the region.“We believe the report delivers this and while we were concerned that combining both authorities would take years, we have been assured that this could happen very quickly if it gets the support of the people and the key stakeholders”.center_img Linkedin Facebook Print Previous articleBoost for small firms in tendering processNext articleHSE and INMO clash on hospital cuts adminlast_img read more

New categories added to Scotch Pie competition

first_imgThe World Scotch Pie Cham-pionships have been revamped and several new categories added, in an effort to give bakers and butchers wider exposure.The 2010 awards, to be announced later this month, will see the reintroduction of the Sausage Roll Category, as well as the addition of five new Speciality Savoury Categories: Hot Savoury; Cold Savoury; Fish; Vegetarian Savoury; and Individual Steak Pie. These will run alongside competitions to find the best Scotch pies and bridies.”We felt it important to include sausage rolls again, as they are one of the most popular products in the savouries sector. There is so much innovation in speciality savouries, it was only right to split them up,” said organiser Alan Stuart, MD of Stuart’s of Buck-haven. “The awards raise public awareness of bakers and but-chers and boost sales and more categories will help do this.”Other changes include a new website and, for the first time, the entries will be judged when both hot and cold. The 11th annual event will be held at Carnegie College, Dunfermline, Scotland, on Tues-day, 10 November.last_img read more

Unrestricted views to Moreton Bay from 3 Mabel Street, MargateYOU don’t need walls to hang artwork when you can have a living panorama of Moreton Bay that only needs airbrushing when the sea breeze rustles the pine trees along Margate Beach.Claudine Sotiau and Placide Masse have built timber houses in Canada, and limestone houses in France (where they are currently visiting).They had been living at Woody Point when a termite ridden house, high on a hill in Margate, caught their attention. It was beyond renovation so they began again, employing Push Architect’s Paul Curran to design their new home in 2008.“We like minimalist, industrial looking buildings and this gave us the opportunity to build such: a breeze swept playground with wide views for two grey nomads, which is why we sell now, ten years later, being even older,’’ Ms Sotiau said.center_img From the back deck, Moreton Bay touches the clouds.From the outside, the steel and glass effect is very dramatic with sharp angles and Aztec designs in black, white and yellow. Striking exterior accents make 3 Mabel Street, Margate a house of distinction.“The house itself is designed to park toys,” she said. “A camper van in the garage, a boat under the carport and tools in the workshop.“My favourite part is the garden entirely planted with natives. They fiercely resist the sea salt and tolerate our absences without complaints.”last_img read more
