15.              Motions:

 

  • Cllr. Aengus O’Rourke:

 For Westmeath County Council to make a strong case to the Department of Housing, Planning & Local Government to invest in and establish a web based Social Housing Support 'portal'.  A modern portal would streamline all aspects of housing services enabling applicants, tenants and property owners to do the following on-line: make applications, see their status, up-date files, check rent, report faults, sign up to schemes, and so much more.  Such a system would lead to easier access to information for clients, allow greater transparency for all users and would revolutionise the work of our own housing section.”

 

  • Cllr. Brian Crum:

“That Westmeath County Council would update on the time taken to undertake improvement works on local authority housing for people with disabilities”
