 Report on joint Kildare Tidy Towns meeting in KCC HQ by  Leinster leader Dec 14th 2006

 response to current hot questions from DOE & KCC Dec 2006

 aims of joint Kildare Tidy Towns meetings
 1. The necessity to devolve a separate and dedicated section of the Local Authority administration to focus solely on the resolution of problems caused by litter and despoiling of the environment in general by individuals and corporate entities.

2. The lack of adequate provision of bins in public and social areas and the need for more frequent collections of bins, particularly in areas of greater social usage such as those adjacent to fast food outlets.

3. The necessity to develop a policy that will make planning permission for the building development, particularly in relation to derelict or potentially derelict sites in urban locations, contingent on the develop maintaining such a site in a manner that does not degrade the surrounding environment.

4. the necessity for the Local Authority to comprehensively and fully fulfil its legal obligations under the Litter Pollution Act 1997 (No.12/1997).
