Seagrave and Lanesborough

12

 

I have being raising the issue of the green area between Seagrave and Lanesborough in Meakstown for some time.

The issue as far as I am aware is that this piece of land has not been taken in charge and the developer is refusing to transfer to the County Council.

The area is once again overgrown and it seems that the area is not managed or maintained by the owners. I have requested that the Council take steps to force the owners to cut the overgrown grass and vegetation back.

Question Tabled in November:

“To ask the Chief Executive to advise when the large green area at the back of Seagrave in Meakstown will be taken in charge and what part of this process is the Council currently at?”

The developers of the residences that generated this and another area of public open space completed agreed works in preparation for progressing the taking in charge process some time ago. However, the registered owner of the land refused to sign the Deeds of Dedication to give effect to the transfer to Fingal County Council. There appears to be no legal mechanism to progress matters. If the owner fails to maintain the area to a satisfactory level enforcement action will be initiated against him
