Our PPN Representative

Julia Glass

Environmental College Representative

Julia is particularly interested in this position with her background as a chartered civil engineer, work undertaken with regards to the environment and biodiversity, and in particular her familiarity with the transportation, water and waste within the County. She has worked relentlessly with Grange Con Tidy Towns on environmental issues for 15 years, including Pure Mile and more recently on Go Greener with Grangecon, which has involved first-hand experience with the majority of the issues and appreciates the general policies in play. She also became a member of the West Wicklow Environmental Network at its launch in 2019. With this in mind she feels that she can contribute to this area of Strategic Policy Committee. She will also be more cognisant with the issues of rural services in relation to the environment which can be somewhat overlooked.
