Tairsceanna Láithreach

(Current Motions)

 12.   Councillor Murphy

Kildare County Council agrees to open a register of delinquent developers.  That we do

so in order that planning permission can be refused on the basis of non compliance with 

   previous planning permissions based on the terms included in the Strategic Infrastructure   Bill.



 13.   Councillor Murphy, Councillor McEvoy, Councillor Moore, Councillor Kennedy

This Council sets aside time to discuss the Council’s response to the recent flooding events  (some happened on 30 December) and the severe weather conditions over Christmas and the early new year. That we consider what was positive and negative about the interaction with other organisations/ agencies and which organisation had lead agency responsibility; what lessons can be learned; what resources were available as against what resources were required including infrastructure weaknesses and future investment needs; we consider how robust our emergency planning is and we encourage a debriefing of first line responders.





 14.   Councillor MacNamara

Where sewerage blockages and leaks occur, flooding back gardens of houses
in estates not taken in charge by Kildare Co. Council, that in the interest of public health and safety that the council investigate such matters as a priority, clear the problem and bill the developer of the estate for the works required to clear the blockage.



 15.   Councillor MacNamara

That Kildare County Council:

·      Note that due to recent budget cutbacks, all schools across Ireland are now increasingly under funded and unable to make ends meet;

·      Notes the Fianna Fail - Green Party Government decision to introduce metered water charges for all schools from January 1, 2010;

·      Asks the County Manager to write to all school principals in the county informing them of the new metered water charges;

·      Asks the County Manager to advise all schools on how they can conserve water consumption and so reduce their water bills to save money.



 16.   Councillor Nolan

We seek a report to this council, on how roads were gritted over the Christmas and New Year period which roads in County Kildare were prioritised for this programme and namely which roads were not treated at all. We also seek an update as to how often the road network in the county was gritted over this period of time, and if the council had enough supplies of grit for the project.



 17.  Councillor S Doyle

As a means of addressing the need to encourage the re-development of  protected structures through the levies scheme that Kildare County Council  amend the current scheme to acknowledge the relatively high costs of  developing these sites with a reduced levies scheme for planning applications on such sites and in so doing incentivise the re-generation of our valuable built environment.




 18.  Councillor Moore

That Kildare County Council, like many other authorities, would undertake to support a road adoption scheme for simple litter control by volunteer businesses, on approach roads into towns, in return for small promotional advertisements in favour of those businesses.



 19.   Councillor Moore

That Kildare County Council now immediately:

(a) Create a public awareness and publicise the arrangements, by which new legislation will be enforced on landlords/house owners to keep their rented properties to at least the standards of the owner/occupied homes of the area.
