Petition to Cornwall Council, Cornwall Council.

WE THE UNDERSIGNED WISH TO EXPRESS A VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE IN CORNWALL COUNCIL.

VERY IMPORTANT. IF YOU SIGN THIS PETITION OR COMMENT PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR POSTCODE SO THAT CORNWALL COUNCIL CAN SEE THAT THE SIGNATURE IS GENUINE. THANK YOU ONE AND ALL. At present Cornwall Council is in the process of borrowing £600 million pounds to fund ''growth''. YES THAT IS SIX HUNDRED MILLION POUNDS TO ADD TO AN ALREADY COLOSSAL DEBT AND PENSION DEFICIT MOUNTAIN THAT WE ARE EXPECTED TO REPAY. In reality this means subsidising developers to build tens of thousands of houses that very few Cornish people can afford whilst virtually ignoring vital infrastructure provision such as community hospitals and minor injury units that act as a safety valve for the ever more stretched district RCHT Treliske. TRY NOT TO GET SICK IN CORNWALL. According to Cornwall Council extensive surveys confirmed that 80% of these new homes were going to local buyers, a recent freedom of information request revealed that no surveys had  actually been conducted. THIS IS YET ANOTHER LIE PROMULGATED BY CORNWALL COUNCIL. European funding has been wasted on various vanity projects that benefit very few while the last straw is the recent cabinet decision to give £8.7 million to the Duke of Cornwall (who is one of the worlds richest men) to ''unlock'' his massive Nansleden housing project to the east of Newquay. THE DUCHY OF CORNWALL IS RAPING CORNWALLS FARMLAND. Cornish Solidarity feels at this point in time that enough really is enough and that Cornwall Council should be called to account for its disastrous performance.  If you agree with us please add your weight to this petition. THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN. LETS THINK BIG AND BE AMBITIOUS BY LETTING THE COMBINED VOICES OF 20000 CORNISH PEOPLE ROAR IN UNISON THAT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Petition to Minister Eoghan Murphy, Joe MacGrath

Finish Glencree, Newport, Tipperary

https://goo.gl/maps/EKmLeLog2Aq Residents in Glencree Newport are left angry and frustrated due to unfinished Estate. Glencree housing estate was originally built in 2003 where the majority of properties were sold off-plan. Such plans portrayed an idyllic setting displaying manicured green spaces, driveways, roads and street lighting. Plans to include 18 townhouses and a state of the art crèche at the entrance to the estate have never materialised. For those residents who have purchased homes, their reality is an entirely different picture. A number of residents have young families and said that it is fast becoming a nightmare scenario.  To date there has been no satisfactory action taken by Singland Homes Ltd., to finish the Glencree Estate. Residents are appealing to Eoghan Murphy, T.D. Minister for Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government to take action as the appalling, unfinished condition of the housing estate is putting lives at risk and hampering the social development of the local community. One resident described it as an absolute eyesore and is affecting normal daily living for young families. Another described the metal fencing surrounding the housing estate as unsightly and unacceptable. Residents are infuriated by the dilapidated Porto cabins, unused building materials and an out-building which remain inside the fencing. Many expressed concern that the footpath surfaces to the main Newport to Thurles road are unfinished and hazardous, forcing people off the paths onto the main road, particularly during heavy rainfall. Residents explained that traffic coming from the Thurles direction is immediately met with what now looks like a run-down estate and are outraged by the fact that their homes are becoming inequitable and say this is having a serious effect on their lives. Residents have been let-down by local T.D.s and Counsellors and feel strongly that Tipperary County Council and politicians have failed them. Residents are seeking support from local business owners and the local community as the unfinished entrance devalues the locality of Newport and not just the estate of Glencree.   Residents are now appealing to Minister Eoghan Murphy, to take swift action. They are demanding that their quality of life is restored and say that this is not what they bought into and is not what they envisaged for their family lives in Glencree 14 years later.   It has also come to our attention that the developer is planning on building in Limerick in the near future after leaving us in an unfinished estate!!! Please sign and share our petition and help give us a voice.  This petition is run independently of Glencree Residents Association
