Dear East Meath Resident,
Good News on the Old Mill Site
On 6th February Meath County Council issued a notice to the owners of the Old Mill Derelict Site, putting them on notice of their intention to start the process of listing the site on the Derelict Sites Register, in accordance with the provisions of the Derelict Sites Act, 1990.
While this is good news for local residents you will note that it has taken more than one threat of legal action to bring the Council to this stage, after years of trying to get them to act. (please see the attached letter from FP Logue Solicitors and MCC’s reply) regarding this.
While the present development is to be welcomed it is merely the start of a process to redevelop this site. JDCA will be keeping a close watch on the subsequent actions of the Council in this regard and will not hesitate to hold them to account for any failure by them to fulfill their obligations under the provisions of the Act.
