Derelict Site – Charlestown Estate

Update on the Derelict Site beside the Charlestown Estate

For a number of months now I have been working with Cllr Philip Lynam and Cllr Duncan Smith as well as Noel Rock TD to see that this site is made secure and that a community based plan is put in place to find a use for it.

The original owner of the site was a developer who is no longer trading so the site effectively has been taken over by the State and the Department of Public Expenditure.

At our request Fingal County Council have written to the OPW to request that the site is cleaned up. To date this has not been done. I have written to the Minister at the OPW and Noel Rock TD has raised the issue in the Dail.

I am now working with the Meakstown Community Council on the issue and we intend to escalate this. It is unacceptable that this area has been left in the state that it is in currently.
