Cllr. Bill Collentine:
“To call of Westmeath County Council to invite the IDA Regional Manager to February meeting to outline their 2020 plans for Westmeath.”


Cllr. John Dolan:

“Considering the unanimous motion passed in Dáil Eireann on the 19th November 2019, this Local Authority recognises: In March 2018 Ireland formally ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (UNCRPD), which under Article 19 states that disabled people have the right to live in the community and have access to a range of in-home and other supports including PAS to support this. Its obligation to consult closely with disabled people and their representative organisations in policy development as enshrined in Article 4.3 of the UNCRPD which states that “in the development and implementation of legislation and policies…States Parties shall closely consult with and actively involve persons with disabilities, including children with disabilities, through their representative organizations”, specifically in relation to services provided by this local authority which impact on disabled people’s lives, such as planning, housing, transport, social inclusion and enterprise. The Motion passed in Dáil Eireann on the 19th November and as such reaffirms that PAS that supports disabled people to live independent lives should be legislated for as a right. Independent Living Movement Ireland as a national disabled persons organisation invite you to join us in the celebrations as they look to an accessible future for representative in local authorities   It is similar to the Motion that was presented to the Dail, which you can see here (http://thomaspringle.ie/2019/11/15/”
