Very unlikely the County council would ever give up all of those areas.

Anything less is a cop out.

That's a very one dimensional view imo.

It would be very beneficial for the City and those areas. But detrimental for the remainder of the County.

Vital for the overall development and attracting future investment to the region that the city boundary is extended to include all the suburbs. Investment goes to cities. A strong city region with a strong city centre is vital for attracting future investment.
The prosperity of the County area depends on the city.
The rates issue whereby the County may lose some could be sorted out by some agreement over time.
Imagine the difference in attracting investment when you are able to say that the population of Cork City is say 250,000 or 300,000 rather than the current farcical 119,000.

Sinn Féin’s 10 county council members said they wanted the two local authorities to be retained, but overseen by “a strategic authority” that would control regional strategic planning and economic development.

Serious question outdagap, do you a member of one of the current government parties?

Actually, am I allowed to ask that on the board?

So a potential F.D.I. investor in Cork could get the green light from either the city or county council but would still require approval by an over arching quango ?

Daft. I passed the City Council canteen this morning at 10.35 am and it was jammed like tge one in the Co.Hall - all happy out with free parking and duplicating services that we all have to pay for but sure none of them want to give up power or influence.

Tbf, the County Council have said that they are in favour of a merger.

What about all their talk that the rural areas would be forgotten CORKBHOY? From what I could see that was the only solid argument against a merger?

I would agree reb23's comments on this that metro cork needs its own council. The county and the city have different priorities and different needs but as reb23 pointed a strong metro Cork will help the development of the county not the other way round.
