Meeting with Local Councillors and Making
Many issues and aspirations were raised at the community 20:20 Vision Consultation Meeting held on the 6th February 2017.
Arising from the outcomes of the Consultation Meeting, the Resident's Association identifies the following Aims and Objectives:
1. Develop a communication strategy to facilitate and support local residents to engage with Newcastle Residents Association and access local services, amenities and information.
2 Prepare and implement a Tidy Town Plan for the Newcastle Area based on a four year cycle.
3 Develop a Village Design Statement to enable Newcastle to be classified, recognised and sustained as a historical village.
Develop opportunities for communication between Newcastle Residents Association, other agencies and neighbouring villages, to enable the area develop as a vibrant and sustainable community.
5. Review on an ongoing basis the remaining issues raised at the Vision 20:20 Consultation Meeting in February 2017, with a view to ensuring that any that have not been included in Strategic
Aims 1 to 4 are given due consideration.
These aims and objectives now form the basis for our Strategic Plan, which we are pleased to say is nearing completion and is due to be agreed and published soon.
Greystones Municipal Councillors
met with a delegation from Newcastle Residents Association on July 25th at the Council's offices in Greystones. The NRA delegation included Michael Carey, Hugh O'Rourke and Jacky Noonan. The purpose of the meeting was to update the Council on progress being made with the ongoing strategic plan for the village. The session was very positive and highly informative for both sides.
