Lavelle welcomes significant breakthrough in long-running taking-in-charge saga

September 23, 2012  

– Legal documentation finally submitted to the council to allow taking-in-charge of open space at the access road to Rossberry, Tullyhall and Haydens Park

 – Cllr. Lavelle has had this issue on the agenda for every meeting of the Lucan Area Committee for the past two years

 Cllr. William Lavelle has welcomed the significant break-through in the long-running saga relating to taking-in-charge of open space at the access road to Rossberry, Tullyhall and Haydens Park. Cllr. Lavelle has received confirmation that the legal documentation required for the taking-in-charge has finally been submitted to the council.

These three estates have been built for over 14 years, yet in all that time the open space has not been handed over to the council. As a result the grass has been often left to grow long and this open space has been often left unkempt to the frustration of local residents.

Cllr. Lavelle has sought to progress this taking-in-charge since being first elected to the council and he has welcomed the submission of legal documentation.

Cllr. Lavelle states: “I have had this issue on the agenda for every meeting of the Lucan Area Committee for the past two years as well as holding regular meetings with council management to seek to progress the taking-in-charge. I have not given up on this issue and I have received significant support from local residents.

“I am delighted that these efforts have now resulted in the submission of legal documentation. While it will take a few weeks to verify and process the necessary legal work, I am very hopeful that we are reaching a final satisfactory conclusion to this long-running saga.
