The Estate Management process seeks to improve the social and physical environment in Council estates. Offaly County Council actively encourages tenants to become involved in resident’s groups /associations in their area. Such groups /associations facilitate the promotion of their interests as residents, both individually and collectively, and enable a two-way working relationship between tenants and the Council.
