Presently, the BWRA is working with other regeneration communities in Dublin to develop a human rights based approach to regeneration. This involves documenting housing problems and other issues affecting living conditions in the area, as well as the right to participate in the decisions that effect our lives.

We are also lobbying our politicians for their support in pushing regeneration forward with a community agenda.

He made representations on our behalf and within hours of his visit green sites that hadn't been tended to in two years were cut and houses that were boarded-up and causing serious problems for residents will now be knocked. Our thanks to Kieran for his assistance.
