LIAISON COMMITTEE FOR RUSH TOWN.

COMHAIRLE CONTAE FHINE GALL

FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL

BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE (SERVICES B) MEETING

11TH JANUARY 2018.

ITEM NO. 37



Motion: Councillor B. Dennehy: AI039814

"This Area Committee calls on the Chief Executive to reinstate the

Rush Liaison Committee which was a very successful conduit for the

town of Rush prior to when it ceased meeting in 2012. The resulting

loss of the Liaison Committee has been highlighted in recent times

when compared against the success stories emanating from the

successful and hardworking Balbriggan, Donabate and Skerries Liaison

Committees”

Report:

A review of Local Government structures is underway at national level

as part of a commitment given in Partnership Government. This

process has already produced a report on the Municipal Districts

structures outside of the Dublin region and a report on structures

within the Dublin region is imminent. It is considered premature to

pursue the establishment of any new structures until such time as the

report on Dublin Local Government structures has been published

and Government decisions on any recommendations arising are

made.

The reinstatement of the Rush Liaison Committee will be considered in

the context of the foregoing.
