Town council can’t take in charge
Millbrook

LAOIS County Council can not take in charge the Millbrook Estate in Portlaoise, because the developer of the estate has failed to submit the proper documentation.

LAOIS County Council can not take in charge the Millbrook Estate in Portlaoise, because the developer of the estate has failed to submit the proper documentation.

Cllr Kathleen O’Brien raised the matter at the recent meeting of Portlaoise Town Council, where she said it was disappointing that the county council are unable to progress with the taking in charge of the estate at Tower Hill.

“We should write to the developer again and request the information,” she said. “That estate is in very good order.”

Cllr Caroline Dwane said that the town council had sought an update on the matter months ago and had received the same reply.

Cllr Dwane said that at that time, it was suggested to get a letter from the local residents association to move the process along, but she did not know whether this has been done.

Mayor Catherine Fitzgerald recommended that the council obtain such a letter from the local residents and the matter will be looked at.
