I want them to take whatever emergency measures necessary to ensure that all emergency and private rental accommodation is firstly "safe" and is of the appropriate and acceptable standard.
Why is this important?
In the light of the recent RTE Prime Time Program "Nightmare to Rent". It is now obvious to all of us that the inspection regime who the County Councils are responsible for is not working. Tenants are being forced to live in unsafe and sub-standard accommodation in Co Meath and all over the country.
Meath County Council and all its councillors have a duty of care to all tenants especially those in emergency accommodation to ensure their safety and that their accommodation is not sub-standard.
