Nenagh Golf Club To Host Final Regular Meeting Of The Current Tipperary County Council


The final regular meeting of the current Tipperary County Council will be held in Nenagh Golf Club on Monday next May 13th. The location is selected as part of the tradition of holding the meeting in or as close as possible to the home of the outgoing Cathaoirleach Cllr Ger Darcy from Ardcroney – one of several councillors not seeking re-election.

The meeting agenda includes setting June 14th as an induction day for newly elected councillors following the June 7th elections. The meeting will also consider the disposal of 6 pieces of council land and approve a decision for the council to borrow €3.56M to enable the Council to issue mortgages under the Rebuilding Ireland Home Loan and the Local Authority Loan Scheme.  The meeting is also expected to set June 21st as the date for the council AGM.

The Council Environment, Economic and Housing sections including Ukrainian Accommodation section will also present updates to the councillors.  As CEO Joe MacGrath is to retire at the end of May the meeting will also be asked to ratify the appointment of Sinead Carr to the County Tipperary Local Community Development Committee.

There are two motions related to Council business on the Agenda – Cllr Seamus Morris is seeking similar planning guidelines for all housing as to that in place for the roll out of modular units for Ukrainian Refugees and also for the “local need rule”  to be relaxed to enable more people to get planing permission.  Cllr Pat English is requesting via motion that Tipperary County Council implement a Household Waste Collection Subsidy Scheme or Bin Waiver Scheme similar to the Scheme in operation in County Limerick.
