Residents in the Glencar area of Letterkenny were misled about works on a telecoms mast by claims that the works were for Irish Water, it has been claimed.The issue was raised at today’s meeting of Letterkenny Municipal Council by local county councillor Gerry McMonagle.The Sinn Fein councillor, who lives in the locality, said locals were left irate because no discussions had taken place before the mast was erected. Because of this, misinformation went out as to the reasons for erecting the mast.Initially rumours went around that this was to be used as a 5G mast while another claim was that the mast was to boost telephone coverage.Cllr McMonagle added that up to one thousand school children pass by the mast each day.He said a consultation process with local residents could have saved a lot of trouble brought about by misinformation. The motion was second by Cllr Jimmy Kavanagh who said the lack of consultation over the mast had left a bad feeling in the mouths of locals.“It is hard to even talk to the local residents about it now because they have a certain view on it and it’s hard for them to get beyond that,” he said.Director of Services with Donegal County Council, Liam Ward, said the council can bring the issue of non-consultation to the attention of the department to allow for a facility for members of the public to air their concerns before a decision is made on masts.Mayor of Letterkenny, Cllr John O’Donnell said he had met with the company behind the mast and had been assured it was not for a 5G signal.

Donegal’s Mica Action Group have stepped up their campaign and are now actively been engaging with banks and financial institutions who hold mortgages on mica properties.The group are making a conserted effort to gain their support for families across the county affected by the defective blocks issue.Joe Morgan, a new MAG committee member, is spearheading the engagement between MAG and the financial institutions. He said “With the announcement in May of this year that there is a requirement for homeowners to contribute 10% towards the cost of the remedial scheme for the repair of their homes, MAG are bringing to the attention of the banks the absolute necessity for them to step up to the plate and support homeowners across the county.“We are reiterating that financial institutions are also stakeholders in this crisis; they potentially have thousands of homes on their books which are currently valued way in excess of the real market value due to the defective blocks issue. It is only following the repair of these homes (through accessing the redress scheme), that this higher valuation can be reinstated.”He added that without the scheme, many of these homes will never return to their former market value.Due to the requirement on homeowners to make a 10% contribution, MAG feel that this scheme will be out of reach for many families without a direct contribution from the lenders, in circumstances where the families cannot make up the 10% private contribution. Mr Morgan added “It is clear that it is also in the lenders interest to ensure homes with financial agreements secured against them (i.e. loans or mortgages) are returned to market value. If families without the means to contribute the 10% private contribution are not supported, these homes will continue to deteriorate year on year. This will lead to those families leaving their home and moving into rental accommodation. Mortgage default and repossession proceedings will follow. This is not what the homeowners want and it is not what lenders want. It is I no-one’s interest to let this happen. “In addition to this direct engagement with lenders, and following a meeting with Minister Joe McHugh on Oct 22nd, where a commitment was given by Minister Mc Hugh to seek a joint supporting statement from The Department of Finance & The Central Bank to ask for unique financial measures from the major lenders in Donegal, last week we again wrote to Minister Mc Hugh (Minister for Education), Minister Eoghan Murphy (Minister for Housing) and Minister Pascal O’ Donoghue (Minister for Finance) asking for their respective updates on this offer of support.The lenders themselves have stated a common approach would be very beneficial and have welcomed a supporting position from The Central Bank and Government. MAG have led discussion and debate to date and have been successful in generating significant engagement within the major lender headquarters in Dublin. They now need help from Government to bring the full circle and to exert pressure from all sides.“In the interim, MAG are continuing to lobby the major lenders and have requested written positions from each lender by the end of November. Lender’s positions will be made public in early December, in order for families to be aware of the support mechanisms in place for them.“It is crucial therefore that the key lenders in the county have indications of support from Government and The Central Bank ahead of this milestone. It is our intent to follow this publication with a Financial information event in Late January 2020 in Letterkenny to support active engagement between the lenders/banks and their customers impacted by the Mica crisis.” MICA group put pressure on banks over homes affected by bad blocks was last modified: November 19th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:bad blocksbankshomesMICAPressure

Ahead of assembly elections it is truly raining promises in Gujarat. Desperate to make a comeback to Gandhinagar, the Congress, which has been out of power in the state for more than a decade and a half, has now promised free laptops to all students after class 12 till post-graduation.The party on Tuesday announced that if voted to power, it will make school education in the state “world class”.The party further promised that it would constitute “Vidya Nidhi” for payment of 30 per cent of the students from poor and middle class families studying in self-financed colleges. It also promised that it would form a “Gujarat Olympics Academy” to train world class sportspersons, for which coaches will be appointed for various sports from within and outside the country. Sports complexes will be established at taluka levels, the party said. The party promised to reserve 25 per cent seats in public schools for poor students as per the RTE Act and the state government will bear the fees for them. “Students Special” buses will also be made available for rural students for commuting to colleges and schools, according to the party.Congress had earlier announced that if voted to power, it will set up a Gujarat Medical Service Corporation (GMSC) to ensure better healthcare facility to the people.The party had also promised that apart from free distribution of around 250 life saving drugs, it will ensure that the medicines in government hospitals are available in their generic forms, which will significantly bring down the cost of treatment. All this apart from paying premium for medical insurance cover up to Rs 30000 per head and provisions for public private partnership for higher cover. Making well strategized moves, Congress has been steadily doling out promises to woo all sections of the society which, many feel, may spell trouble for the BJP in the ensuing assembly election.Congress had got a shot in the arm after its promise of cheap houses to the women of Gujarat under the scheme ‘Ghar nu Ghar’ became a hit with people in the state. As a matter of fact, the impact of the poll promise led the Gujarat government to resurrect the moribund Gujarat Housing Board after more than 14 years.As a matter of fact, the state government has also recently rolled out healthcare and medical insurance schemes for people below poverty line.advertisement
