Laois County Coucnil still have no date to take Woodview Estate in charge.

Cllr Caroline Dwane Stanley, who had asked for an update a recent meeting of the Portlaoise Municipal Area, said she was disappointed by the council’s response.

“Seventeen years later the estate is still not taken in charge,” she said.

In a written reply to the meeting, Angela McEvoy, senior planner said the planning section were currently reviewing the snaglist with regard to this estate and updating same.

Acknowledging the work done in the estate in the last two years, Cllr Dwane-Stanley said there had been a long snag list.

“The residents sent in a petition in 2010, it is almost 2015 now and no mention of it.”

“It has completely gone off the council’s agenda,” she said.

Cllr Dwane-Stanley asked for a more detailed report.
