Small section of big Portlaoise estate to be taken in charge

A previously unfinished section of Aghnaharna estate in Portlaoise.

A small part of a large Portlaoise housing estate is to be taken in charge by Laois County Council.

Another 13 houses in Aghnaharna will be brought under the local authority's responsibility for streetlights, roads and services, agreed at the January council meeting.

The road from house numbers 90 to 102 of Aghnaharna Drive will be taken on, proposed by Cllr Catherine Fitzgerald, seconded by Cllr Noel Tuohy.

The council estimates that the four streetlights on the road will cost €200 a year to maintain, with another €1,000 to be spent annually on the road and services.

The large estate of over 100 homes is being taken in charge bit by bit as it is completed, with the first sections of Aghnaharna Drive and Aghnaharna Court being taken in charge back in 2015 and 2016. 

The estate is on the Stradbally road between Summerhill school campus and Aghnaharna school campus, with more houses planned around it.
