Requested Update Taking-in-Charge of Emerson Court, Prosperous and The Cloisters, Clane

Clane Area Committe Meeting

8 April 2014

Councillor Pádraig McEvoy


Can the council update the committee on the prospect or progress of the taking in charge of Emerson Court, Prosperous and The Cloisters, Clane?


The Planning Authority can no longer take in charge watermains and sewerage infrastructure since 1 January 2014, when the council’s role as Water Services Authority was transferred to Irish Water. The council cannot commence the formal taking in charge process for any private housing estates until the position with the taking in charge of this infrastructure is clarified.


That committee would write to Irish Water and to the Minister of the Environment to ask that they address this issue urgently.
