The Limerick Chamber of Commerce is calling for the Government to implement the recommendations of the Brosnan Report without delay.
Denis Brosnan, one of Ireland’s most successful strategic entrepreneurs, was asked to chair the Limerick Local Government Committee which was asked to look at the challenges facing Limerick and make recommendations so that it can be structured to deliver a successful future for its citizens and region.
The recommendations of the report includes:
• Annual savings of €20m, yes million, in the running of Limerick City & County.
• One local authority called Limerick City & County to run Limerick.
• The elimination of duplicate services, bodies and departments across Limerick.
• The redrawing of the boundary area of the city so that statistics on Limerick are based on what the urban reality is on the ground.
• The local governance of Shannon Banks and Westbury, which are integral parts of Limerick, be under the administration of the new authority.
• That one Mayor be elected to represent all of Limerick.
Launching its Strong Region and Strong City campaign in support of the implementation of the report, Chamber president Kieran McSweeney said that implementation of the Brosnan report was a unique opportunity for Limerick city and the Mid-West to grow economically.
The campaign is rallying the support of the local business community and public, including through an online petition on the Chamber’s website – www.limerickchamber.ie
