Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has welcomed the commitment from Department of Environment Minister Alex Attwood to include councillors being part of local planning groups working on the Review of Public Administration. Speaking to Newry Times, Mr Boylan said, “I have got a commitment from the Minister Alex Attwood during a meeting of the Environmental Committee that he would look at putting councillors onto the working groups on RPA. These working groups were set up under the reform process to explore ways to make the implementation of RPA as smooth as possible. ” He added, “As councillors are at the heart of local government it is important that they have an input into this process. I also welcome that legislation is now being brought forward that will allow the shadow councils to be in place in 2014 which will add immeasurably to the even transition to the new council model.”
