My first motion in Novembers MD meeting;
That the Council provide an up-to-date report of estates taken and not taken in charge around the district and to include in the report estates in order of priority and progress.
Report issued by Ken Kavanagh, Senior Executive Officer, Planning Dept. In the period 1984 to 2005, 127 estates were taken in charge, 31 of these were in the Newbridge/Kildare Municipal District area.
In the period 2006 -2013, 123 estates were taken in charge, 47 of these were in the Newbridge/Kildare Municipal District area.
In 2015, 56 estates were put on display for taking in charge, of these 9 are in the Newbridge/Kildare Municipal District. The members have previously been provided with these details. It is hoped to have the taking in charge of these estates completed by early 2016.
