Clonburris SDZ Appeal

On the 16th July 2018 I submitted an objection to the Clonburris SDZ draft with my Independent Colleagues Cllr. Guss O’Connell and Cllr. Francis Timmons. Essentially our objection is requesting that the amendments to the draft SDZ that we successfully passed initially in SDZ meetings in Jan/feb which were removed by other councillors in June of this year are re-instated. The councillors who voted to remove our amendments were a grouping including Sinn Fein, Labour and Social Democrats. You can download a copy of the appeal here. Read More
