In a bid to help the arkden district, Njdev’s stability guidance is a step in the right direction but it’s not helping the community, a senior community member has said.
Read more The community is in dire need of assistance, but the government and its regional and local partners aren’t getting it, said Dr Mike Nevin, head of NjDEV’s Stability and Waterways program.
NjDev has released a statement outlining its recommendations for how the district can improve its performance in the context of the region’s overall regional development plan, but it doesn’t provide an example for what the district should do. “
This guidance isn, in my view, not delivering what we need.”
NjDev has released a statement outlining its recommendations for how the district can improve its performance in the context of the region’s overall regional development plan, but it doesn’t provide an example for what the district should do.
The district needs to focus on how to improve the resilience of the surrounding community, said Nevin.
This would mean the community must be protected from adverse weather conditions and be able to move freely around the district in an organised way.
We’re really focused on improving the resilience and resilience of this area, said senior community advocate, Michael McLean.
Nevin said it was not the community’s role to decide how to deliver the guidance, which is why the community has asked Njdep to review the guidelines.
He said the guidance could also benefit the district’s residents by providing guidance on how they can manage their water use.
It’s important that NjDep is able to see the effects of their actions on the community and understand how it affects them, said McLean, adding that NjoDev needs to take on board the community feedback.
Water has become a significant issue in the district, which has seen more than 80 percent of its residents affected by water scarcity in recent years.
Residents say the district is suffering from a lack of infrastructure, such as pipes and water-related infrastructure, to manage the water use of their homes.
A recent report by the Northern Ireland Water Management Authority said water use in the region is at the highest levels in the UK.
Its report found the district needs about 4,000 megawatts of water to meet demand, while there is a shortage of 2,700 megawatts.
In a statement, NjoDep said the district has already invested over £150 million in infrastructure in recent decades and it had a robust plan to support community needs.
If there was a clear vision on how this district could deliver this, it would be a good place to start, said the statement.
However, Nnav Dev said that it had been contacted by NjDEP about its guidance, but had not received any feedback.
It has also been contacted to ask if NjDEV’s guidance is currently being used, but said it had no further comment at this time.
Community advocates say the guidance has already created a huge burden on the district and is not helping to address the problem.
One of the community members, Mike McLean from the NjEvolution Project, said that Nndev needs to be transparent with the community on what it’s doing to help improve its resilience.
There’s been a lot of misinformation about this, he added.
“There are no plans to address water in this area,” he said, adding the district would need to consider a range of measures to improve water quality in the area.
Maurice Wilson from the Arkden Neighbourhood Development Corporation (ANDC) said NjDEC had not released a clear direction yet.
What the NjoDEV guidance says, it’s all about water, it says in the guidance.
It’s not about community.
NjdeV has been asked to look at this and we’re very clear about this and what it means for us.
ANDC has been working with NjDeV to make sure that it’s a good direction for the community to follow.
NjDEA said it would look at how Nj DEV could deliver on its guidance and that it would seek feedback from the community.
An NjDeliv source said the council would also take a look at the guidance in detail, as a matter of urgency.
The Nj Devs guidance does not include a timeframe or plan to deliver a better water situation, but we will work with the council and our partners to ensure that this guidance is delivered to the community in the best way possible.”
