The improvement in the ranking of Mahon follows a refocusing of resources and engagement with the community to tackle littering, dog fouling and illegal dumping in the area.
The continued low ranking of the Northside is however disappointing and does not reflect the work carried out by both the City Council and community groups in the area. It is worth noting that of the 25 areas surveyed there were 2 A grades, 2 B+ grades, 14 grade B’s, 2 C+ Grades and 5 Grade C Grades.
Cork City Council will be reviewing the report findings with a view to assessing what changes, further actions or new initiatives need to be carried out to ensure progress for the whole city in future surveys.
