Council housing staff are based in Tullow

A councillor has asked if the local authority's housing section could be relocated from Tullow to Carlow Town after the Local Elections when the county will be split into three Municipal Districts (Bagenalstown, Tullow and Carlow Town). 

Cllr Fergal Browne brought up the issue several times at a recent meeting of Carlow Municipal District but he recieved no response from Council management. 

Currently the housing section is located in Tullow and Cllr Browne asked if there was "scope to partially move back some of the facilities" in the context of the whole new three MDs happening. 

He asked twice if the local authority's housing department could be "relocated" with the establishment of the three MDs so that residents in Carlow Town and people on the housing lists would have greater access.
