Statement by simon coveney, minister for housing, planning, community & local government

“The report in relation to the Kilkenny/Waterford boundary is one of four such review processes initiated by former Minister for the Environment, Alan Kelly, T.D. The committees were asked to carry out a review of the boundary between the respective local authorities and to make recommendations with respect to those boundaries and any consequential matters that they consider necessary in the interests of effective local government. The reports are advisory - I am not bound by their recommendations.

The recommendation in the Waterford/Kilkenny report to move the existing county boundaries has caused a lot of unease and concern in the area. This has been articulated directly to me by elected representatives and citizens through the consultation process on the National Planning Framework. The issue of identity, linked to county boundaries

The Non Principal Private Residence (NPPR) charge, which was abolished in 2013, was a €200 annual charge on non-principle private residences and was payable by owners to the relevant local authority.

Revenue has appealed to the Court of Appeal a decision of the High Court in January 2017 on the deductibility of the NPPR charge against rental income for tax purposes. Until the Appeal is decided, Revenue cannot amend assessments or process repayment claims.

There is a statutory four-year limit on repayment claims and Revenue therefore advises any taxpayer who paid the NPPR charge for 2013, to notify Revenue in 2017 of their claim to deduct the payment from rental income. It is important to note that unless such a claim is made in 2017, it will fall outside of the four year statutory time limit for repayment. Revenue confirms that claims

Sinn Fein TD for Waterford David Cullinane has hit out at Minister Simon Coveney and the Government on their decision to set aside the recommendations of an Independent Boundary Report.

He said the Minister was making a 'political' decision and was inconsistent in his approach. He said the 'Regional Cities' concept being proposed by the Minister rings hollow.

Speaking Deputy Cullinane said:

"This Government is cherry picking which Independent Reports it will implement when it comes to Waterford and the South East. It sets aside recommendations contained in an Independent Boundary Report and yet clings to dear life to recommendations in the Herity Report. It seems the value of Independent advice depends on what suits the Government politically.

"And what now of the big promise of the National Planning Framework? Minister Coveney talks up the concept of regional cities but falters at the first

Trade Unions in Waterford have given their full support to Bus Éireann workers, on strike to protect their jobs and working conditions.

Speaking during a visit to the picket line, Waterford Council of Trade Unions President, Una Dunphy said “This dispute is of historic importance for all Irish workers and for Irish society. If the management get away with destroying the security and value of jobs in Bus Éireann, it will be a signal to employers throughout the public and private sectors to go on the attack, and turn Ireland into a low wage, low service economy”.

It has long been Fine Gael policy to break up and dismantle CIE and its individual parts. The only thing that stopped previous attempts by the likes of Ministers Lowry and Brennan, was the threat of an all-out national transport strike across the company, including
