Re: Re: Dublin City Council – Enforcement
I got the impression recently that there are only two staff in enforcement. When I left Dublin they still only had an acting manager and had at least 3 staff vacancies. What is shocking is their inability to move people over from planning.
An FOI request would highlight the short-staffing. As it is an environmental matter it would be free under Access to Information on the Environment Regulations 2007. http://www.environ.ie/en/AboutUs/AccesstoInformationontheEnvironment/RHLegislation/FileDownLoad,2481,en.pdf
I would encourage putting one in and highlighting it with the press. Be sure to ask how long they have been short-staffed.
