Tairsceanna Láithreach

(Current Motions)

11. Councillor S Doyle  
That all house purchases from the housing capital investment programme, within housing estates that are not taken in charge,  be contingent on verification from our taking in charge section that conditions of planning are being appropriately met by the developer or vendor.


12. Councillor O’Callaghan                                  

That Kildare County Council take the necessary steps to ensure payments of higher education grants for 2009 take place as soon as possible.


13. Councillors Langan, O’Donnell and Weld

That Kildare County Council call on the Government to support the retention of the existing Community Development Programme structures, and in particular the three CDP’s based in County Kildare, so that they can retain their status as independent companies limited by guarantee, and that the Council supports the three campaign principles of the Kildare CDPs which are:


(a) The Community Development Programme and the three Kildare CDPs deliver a value-for-money support for community development in disadvantaged communities across Ireland. At this time of economic downturn, CDP’s are needed now more than ever. Rather than disempowering local participation and active citizenship, the Government should support it by maintaining the present structures.


(b) The CDPs should remain as independent companies limited by guarantee, ensuring that local people are leading the development of their own communities without being restricted by other agencies.


(c)  If any changes are to be made to the Community Development Programme, that CDP’s are consulted with and listened to in a genuine way and not merely as a token gesture.
