ITEM 8 - Questions submitted by SPC Members
- Submitted by Councillor T. Fox
Noting that the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government will provide funding to Sligo County Council to refurbish and re-let 52 vacant local authority homes in Sligo in 2021, can I ask for a list of where these properties are located
- Submitted by M. Swann
What level of environmental impact assessment is in place for each type of development application? If the planner could specify level from retrofitting an old house (i.e. are there bat surveys etc.) to new housing developments. I would like to propose also
that Housing introduces a blanket ban on pesticide use on grasslands in housing estates, as well as promote more 'Don't Mow let it Grow' campaigns for the housing estates with contractors and furthermore work with the roads department to add wild seed into newly planted areas rather than just planting grass seed as has now been done along the N15.
