Residents to be updated on Knocknaheeny Regeneration Plan

Residents to be Updated on Knocknaheeney Regeneration Plan

A meeting will take place next Thursday in Knocknaheeney to highlight the growing housing crisis in the city and to update local residents on the Knocknaheeney Regeneration Plan. The meeting is hosted by local councillor Jonathan O'Brien and will take place on 2nd December at 7.30 in Terence MacSwiney School.

Encouraging people to attend the meeting, Councillor O'Brien said:

"This is the fourth meeting Sinn Féin has organised as part of our city-wide housing campaign, "Lets End the Wait". With over 8,000 people on the waiting list for housing, and the prospect of savage cuts in the housing budget in this year's estimates, it has never been more important that people come together to demand decent housing for all."

"Cork Sinn Féin has published a detailed set of policy proposals on how to end the housing crisis in our city, and we will continue to campaign until they are implemented by the council."

"I will also be taking the opportunity of this meeting to update local residents on the council's proposals for the Knocknaheeney Regeneration Plan. This project is critical for the future of the area and will have an impact on everyone who lives here. I think it is important that residents are consulted on the plan and given as much information as possible. Next Thursday night I will lay out what the council is currently proposing and listen carefully to the comments and feedback of local people."

"I would encourage anybody living in Knocknaheeney to come to the meeting and have their say on the future of their area."
