Concern Over Closure of Glen Local Housing Office
Sinn Féin councillor Thomas Gould has condemned the closure of the local housing office in The Glen, which was only revealed to councillors last night.
“This decision is bad for the community and will seriously inconvenience many Glen Residents” stated Cllr Gould.
“Instead of being able to talk to a local housing officer who is familiar with their community they will be forced to journey into the city or ring City Hall. There they will have to face the red tape and delay that seems to be the trademark of the council’s housing department.”
“It is also alarming that local councillors were not consulted or informed about this decision until last night.”
“This is just one more example of cutbacks that are hurting ordinary people at a time when the government has funnelled €50 billion into the country’s banks.”
