The Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government has come under scrutiny for failing to guarantee a revaluation of commercial rates in County Donegal. Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher raised the issue in Dáil Éireann on Tuesday, questioning why Donegal was not part of a countrywide commercial revaluation that commenced almost a decade ago.Since 2009, a different county has been selected for revaluation – with Donegal not part of a full revaluation thus far. Speaking on the matter, Deputy Gallagher said: “I questioned the Minister as to why Donegal was not part of the counties that were subject to a full revaluation.“Whilst appreciating that the decision to conduct revaluations is a matter for the valuations office, the policy which prescribed that all 150,000 commercial businesses be set for a revaluation is a government decision.“Therefore counties that are currently struggling economically and showing slower growth patterns should have been prioritised above other more successful counties,” added Pat the Cope.“Commercial rates are a grossly unfair tax and are probably the greatest inhibitor to employment creation in rural Ireland at present. “The system of rates is archaic and far too blunt an instrument for levying taxes on businesses, it does not take on board business turnover, business costs, duration of business activity or the profits or losses a business makes on an annual basis.“The counties which have already benefitted from a revaluation by enlarge have seen a 35% to 40% reduction in the cost of rates levied on their respective businesses.“That being said, the rates system is still wrong and I have raised this matter previously in the Dáil, the urgent need to reform the entire system of levying taxes on businesses in order to run local authorities but the Government is reluctant and unwilling to tackle this issue,” added Gallagher“In his reply to me, the Minister informed me that Donegal would benefit from a revaluation commencing in late 2019, and it would typically take two years to complete.“We are one of five counties which thus far have none been part of this process, the other counties being Kerry, Cork, Mayo and Galway. “Whilst, the revaluation has now to take place, it is as I stated previously extremely late in the day. But, it can only be an interim measure because the system of commercial rates is flawed due to its unfairness as a tax.“Unfortunately for the businesses alone, the revaluation is occurring at a period of increased economic activity, whereas those counties which were revaluated in 2011 to 2017 would have benefitted from a downturn in economic activities, which is a key matrix in setting new commercial rates levels.“A better system of tax on commercial property and business must be introduced by a subsequent Government, and work has commenced on this by various political parties in the Dáil at present.”Govt scrutinised for failing to guarantee commercial rates revaluation for Donegal was last modified: July 3rd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Pat the Cope

Fine proposals except,Sanjeev SanyalIn his Budget speech, Arun Jaitley reiterated the NDA Government’s plan to build a hundred ‘smart cities’, presumably by upgrading and expanding existing towns and raising a few new urban centres. The finance minister also announced five new IITs, as many IIMs and four AIIMS-pattern institutions. Fine proposals except these will be seen as separate, mutually exclusive projects during implementation. That would be a pity, for these are inextricably linked. Universities, for instance, are critical to making cities successful. It is almost impossible to imagine Boston, US, without Harvard, MIT and other institutions clustered in and around the Boston-Cambridge area. In Britain, Oxford and Cambridge are vibrant towns largely because they host the two famous universities. Indeed, many global cities such as London and New York would be much diminished without LSE, LBS, Columbia University, NYU. Rather than being walled off from the rest of the two cities, these institutions are an integral part of their urban ecosystems.Newly successful cities such as Singapore too have invested heavily in universities, think tanks and research institutes, not just as centres for intellectual activity but as part of the wider urban ecosystem. Indeed, when the country’s government planned the Singapore Management University, it set it up in the middle of the city. The city benefits from the “urban buzz” brought by young people while the university profits from being close to state and corporate institutions. Contrast this with Indian planners’ idea of academic institutions: merely places for teaching students that have little direct link with the daily functioning of the city. This is so because they see town projects as mechanical silos and do not think in terms of organic ecosystems. Thus, universities built after Independence were housed in sealed-off campuses, often in remote places, that discourage interaction with the city. Modelled on a socialist-era factory township, their walls continue to isolate them socially and intellectually even where the cities have expanded to surround them. This is why Kanpur and Kharagpur benefit little from being home to a prestigious institution like an IIT. Even in Delhi and Mumbai, IITs are closed worlds. Before Independence, on the other hand, universities were seen as part of the urban fabric. The colleges of Bombay and Calcutta were built into the city much like those of London. Allahabad and Aligarh were driven largely by their vibrant universities, much like Oxford and Cambridge.advertisementWhenever I ask Indian officials and planners about ‘smart cities’, I get a laundry list of hardware infrastructure that is needed: state-of-the-art public transportation, smart power grids and so on.This is indeed important, but it overlooks the fact that cities are ultimately about people, not buildings. Successful cities are those that can cluster human capital and encourage innovation, creativity and exchange of ideas. To be ‘smart’, therefore, cities need both hardware and software. Universities are an essential part of this software. This is why great cities of the past-Athens, Florence, Constantinople, Rome, Alexandria, Ujjain, Varanasi-were almost always also great intellectual centres. They attracted talent, encouraged the churn of ideas and triggered innovation. Translated in modern terms, universities do not just attract young people to cities but provide venues for conferences, seminars, cultural and sporting events enabling human interaction that makes for lively urban clusters. Indian planners see town projects as mechanical silos and do not think in terms of organic ecosystems.Now that the Government has announced its intention to build new academic institutes, the focus will likely be on getting large tracts of land and constructing standalone buildings. If anything, success will be measured by how much land has been acquired. This is wasteful, and not just at one level. First, this approach requires unnecessary acquisition of productive farm and forest land. Why do we need hundreds of acres to educate a few thousand students? As Jaitley would know, his alma mater, Shri Ram College of Commerce, runs one of India’s top colleges on just 17 acres. There are many top-notch institutions around the world that operate from much less. Second, a standalone institute requires the creation of expensive infrastructure in isolated locations, including staff housing, convocation halls, seminar rooms and so on. But, how often will the convocation hall be used? In a city location, these facilities would have added to the overall urban infrastructure. Moreover, such remote campuses are inconsiderate of the social and career needs of the families of the faculty and staff, a major constraint to finding good faculty. We can’t envision universities as industrial-era factory townships where wives stay at home and children study in the company school. Finally, and most damagingly from an urban perspective, these isolated campuses are unable to add to the ecosystem. Students come and they leave, so human capital does not accumulate in the host city.The Government should, therefore, consider using new institutions to seed the ‘smart cities’. This would mean weaving new IITs, IIMs and AIIMSs into the surrounding urban fabric. This may look messy on a master plan drawing board but, on the ground, it would create cities that are vibrant and, indeed, smart.advertisement- Sanjeev Sanyal is an economist, writer and urban theorist

Riyadh: Saudi Arabia, the world’s top oil exporter, is expected to restore Monday at least a third of the production lost to weekend attacks on two major oil facilities, according to experts and reports. The Saturday strikes on national energy giant Aramco’s Abqaiq processing plant and Khurais oil field knocked 5.7 million barrels per day (bpd) off production, over half of the OPEC kingpin’s output, sending shockwaves through markets. Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman said Sunday the kingdom would use its vast inventories to partially compensate for the lost production, and the US also authorised the release of its reserves. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US But oil prices saw a record surge on Monday, with key contracts more than 10 percent higher as finger-pointing at Iran fuelled fresh geopolitical fears. The Energy Intelligence specialist newsletter cited industry sources as saying Aramco was “close to restoring as much as 40 percent” of the lost production, or about 2.3 million bpd. The Wall Street Journal cited people familiar with the damage estimates as saying the hit facilities would take weeks to return to full production capacity. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls However, one of its sources told the newspaper: “We should be able to have two million barrels a day back online… by tomorrow (Monday).” Industry consultant Energy Aspects also estimated the country would be able to restore almost half the lost production as early as Monday. Aramco said Saturday it would provide an update within two days, and all eyes are on official word on the state of play, which could offer reassurance to jittery markets. A report by Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya television said Monday however that Aramco was ready to restart the Khurais plant, which handles 1.5 million bpd. Saudi Arabia pumps 9.9 million bpd, almost 10 percent of global demand, of which seven million bpd is destined for export. The kingdom also has a spare capacity of around two million bpd that it can draw on at times of crisis. Yemen’s Iran-aligned Huthi rebels have claimed responsibility for Saturday’s strikes, one of the most destructive attacks on Saudi oil facilities, but the kingdom has not yet officially accused any side. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pointed the finger squarely at Tehran, saying there was no evidence the “unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply” was launched from Yemen. US President Donald Trump has raised the possibility of military retaliation, saying Sunday that Washignton was “locked and loaded” to respond to the attack. Tehran denies the accusations but the news revived fears of direct conflict after a series of attacks on oil tankers in sensitive Gulf waters earlier this year that were also blamed on Iran.
