Laois County Council intend to carry out a survey of Clonminham Industrial Estate, to address issues of derelict sites and vacancy levels.

The commitment was given at last week’s meeting of the Portlaoise Municipal District, in response to a motion raised by Cllr Jerry Lodge. He said the estate needs to be enhanced as it is currently not very attractive to would be entrepreneurs.

“Many premises are well maintained, but there are problems with footpaths and lighting,” he said. “People have paid charges, we should sit down together and resolve it.”
