Clean up vacant shops-Kearney

first_imgEmail Previous articleThrowing light on Sarsfield BridgeNext articlePipe bombs made safe admin Owners must be penalisedMOVES by City Hall to attract new business to the city centre are being hampered by their own failure to penalise owners of vacant shop units, claims a leading city auctioneer.Pat Kearney of Rooney Auctioneers, told the Limerick Post that he has had approaches from leading retailers to identify premises in LimerickSign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up -”but it is embarrassing on walkabouts when confronted with unsightly posters, boarded up units, bushes growing out of facades of buildings, etc.“It can be a difficult sell. Who would want to take on a decent looking shop placed on the market when the units around them have that neglected look.“Take Marks & Spencer for example. If they fail to get permission at the Crescent, and the Opera Centre is further delayed, where else could they open? They would run from the city.“We need instant regulation of vacant city centre units to present a clean face”.He has been supported by Green candidate in the Local Elections, James Nix, who, in an effort to revitalise the city centre, has called on the authorities to provide half rates to new tenants in their first year in operation.And a Limerick businesswoman, who asked not to be identified, called for drastic action to improve the image of the city.“There are fewer and fewer people coming into town…we need to make it more attractive and that can only be done by encouraging new traders to set up here”.Kearney called on City Council to introduce by-laws giving them authority to clean up vacant units and to send the bill to the owners.“I know from my years in business that Limerick had a lot to offer and as a location, appeals to both Irish traders and multinationals.“But we are allowing it to fall into decay. I accept that the people at City Hall want to revitalise the city, but if that is to be done then they must take action. All those closed shops, many of them falling into a state of disrepair, could be left there for years, unless City Hall get tough.Continued from page 1.“Just look at Catherine Street, across from the Health Board offices. A whole row of shops and houses there are just waiting to fall”.Kearney proposes that the students at the School of Art and Design, be contracted to display their artistic talents by providing paintings of Limerick, mock interiors and murals for display on vacant shop fronts.“At least that would keep facades in a clean condition”.There are literally dozens of units lying idle in our main thoroughfares, which are in effect creating the appearance of a retail ghetto and in many instances, owners are not paying attention to their upkeep.

Our proposals set out the building block that need to be put in place in the budget to create an environment within which young farmers can establish themselves in the industry and have a successful career.The main points of the submission are:· The extension of young farmer stamp duty relief on purchases of land up to 40 years of age and the increase in the Capital Acquisition Tax threshold that farmers can receive as gift or inheritance is also being sought to reflect increasing property values and to encourage the early transfer of farms.· For income tax relief, Macra are seeking greater flexibility in the implementation of the 100% young farmer Stock Relief to reflect farm development and growth plans of young farmers. An extension of the land leasing tax incentive to include parent and children for one term of seven years is also being proposed.· To help support female farmers Macra is proposing the introduction of aid to cover the cost of replacement labour during maternity leave.· To aid competitiveness in the sector the organisation is calling for the introduction of a fund to encourage young farmers to engage in better grass utilisation, a key target in the Food Wise 2025 report. Future amendments to the Rural Development Program should include a focus on supporting grazing infrastructure under the TAMS scheme.· Income volatility is a major issue and Macra has lobbied for a number of years for a measure to encourage farmers to put away some income in a good year and have access to this money in a tax efficient manor in a year of poor returns. Volatility is one of the biggest issues facing all farmers and the government needs to look at introducing an effective mechanism to tackle the damaging effects of volatility on farmers.· On access to credit for young farmers Macra is seeking the introduction of funding from the European Investment Bank which is available to member states to access through the Rural Development Program.· Agricultural education, advisory and research are essential support mechanisms for young farmers and these need to be further supported.· For the development of rural youth who are the engine for growth and development in rural areas, Macra is calling for various measures including adequately financial resources to be provided in this budget for the provision of youth mental health services. There are also a number of measures that remain to be implemented and adequately funded under the report by the Commission for the Economic Development of Rural Area including the provision of quality high speed broadband to all rural areas.· Finally an increase in the investment in youth work through the Youth Services Grant Scheme is essential for Macra to provide services to help train and develop rural youth in leadership and personal development.

Picture credit: Kenny Smith / SPORTSFILEFORMER Munster Rugby hooker Duncan Casey has lined out to show his support for the work of ActionAid Ireland and their emergency response to Covid-19 in the developing world.Casey, who is a long-time commentator and campaigner on international issues, spoke about the importance of public support for agencies like ActionAid who are fighting the pandemic in some of the world’s poorest countries.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “International aid and charity work is vital but never more so since Coronavirus began to take hold. The simple securities we rely on to survive this virus, things like washing our hands and social distancing, these are luxuries if not impossibilities for people in the developing world. It doesn’t bear thinking about,” he said.Casey, who played for Munster from 2013 to 2018 before finishing off his professional career with French club Grenoble in mid-2019, said he was thrilled but not surprised by a recent survey which showed Munster people to be the “most generous and informed” people in the country when it comes to overseas aid.“Research done earlier in the year by ActionAid and other Irish aid charities found that Munster people are ahead of the game when it comes to our generosity for overseas aid and development. It makes me very proud to hear this. I care deeply about our role within the global community and especially in times like this.“As the crisis has hit us here first, it’s a really uncertain time and while it’s natural to want to look inwards, it’s so important that we look beyond our own shores. A small donation from us can go a long way in these countries.“You can feel very helpless in these times, it’s hard to know what you can do make a real difference. That’s why I think it’s important to support credible charities with track-records like ActionAid who are capable of delivering the most effective crisis response programmes in the countries that need them,” he concluded.To support the work of ActionAid Ireland go to www.actionaid.ie or tel 01 8787911.last_img read more
