“We are getting there!” states Cllr Mulligan

Monday, August 20, 2018
Reviewing the recent GeoView Commercial Vacancy Rates Report, on occupancy rates in towns and cities across the whole of Ireland, it reaffirms what we know in the city and county and are working on at all levels to address. It is disappointing to read that the vacancy rate for the county as a whole is 14.3%, for the second quarter 2018, but it is reassuring to read that it is 0.3% of an improvement of same period in 2017 and keeps us mid table in the national rankings.

Waterford Issues

In May 2014 I was elected to represent the people of Waterford in the City and County’s first ever amalgamated Council.

During those first three years a lot of water has passed under the bridge and I have been, quite literally, working flat out, helping both individuals and businesses with all manner of issues, including making the following submissions;

  • Submission on Waterford Council Corporate Plan
  • City Centre Management Plan
  • Waterford Economic Enterprise & Community Plan
  • Planning Development Contribution Scheme
  • Sustainable Development of Dunmore East – Feasibility Study & Action Plan
  • White Paper on Defence
  • City Centre Urban Renewal Plan
  • “Inland Fisheries Ireland” Corporate Plan
  • Celtic Sea Herring Fisheries 2015/2016 Quotas


My drive and determination to put Waterford back on the political map is unrelenting and I will continue to be a challenging voice for the people and a commercially driven Councillor who will continue to ask the tough questions that have been so absent in recent years.
