FLAWED HOUSING POLICY MUST BE REVIEWED

WICKLOW’S FLAWED HOUSING POLICY MUST BE REVIEWED

The Leader of Fine Gael on Wicklow County Council George Jones has said “after our discussions on Monday at the Council a review of our housing policy must be reviewed.
Cllr Jones also said “Wicklow must stop its “knee jerk” reaction when problems arise in the County. In recent years we have tended to call special meetings to discuss issues that have arisen in the public arena taking decisions that we feel will be popular with the public.

Going forward we must show leadership and have a little more strategic planning in our decision making said George Jones.

Over the summer Cllr Jones said he hoped that a mature look would be taken at our housing policy and in cases where difficulties are arising we must agree a policy with the Council Management, Elected members, the Community , HSE and Garda Authorities. If there is a Wicklow problem we must find a Wicklow solution said Jones.
