A special committee on Kildare County Council says it is not in favour of a suggestion to include KCC housing tenants.
Sinn Fein Cllr., Thomas Redmond, proposed that a tenant representative be included on the Housing Special Policy Committee.
There are around 3,500 council tenant households in the county.
The SPC "acknowledged the spirit of the motion"
It, however, is not in favour of it "due to the confidential and sensitive information which is discussed in committee. "
It was also noted that " the composition of strategic policy committees is informed by law and a change cannot be made by individual committees."
