5 Cahir Estates Taken in Charge
Cahir Estates to be taking in charge.Cllr Andy Moloney signed 5 Cahir Estates into charge of the council at today's meeting of Clonmel Municipal District meeting. Moloney who had been knocking on doors over the last number of years to have estates ‘Taken in Charge'said it was a huge step for Cahir and thanked everyone involved in bringing this to fruition.As it stands, if an estate is not in charge of the Council and issues arise with sewerage ,lighting or roads then Irish Water, Airtricity or the council will not enter the estate.When a developer finishes an estate they generally apply to have it taken in charge but in the event of this application not been made then 51% of the owners can do it.On this occasion The Oaks, Galtee View, Hillview Crescent, Comeragh Crescent and Lakeview were approved. All of the remaining estates in Rosemount have live applications with the council and it is hoped that these will get over the line over the next 12 months. Estates not in charge can be problematic when it comes to selling. However,while the taking in charge of an estate looks after the footpaths, roads and sewerage and water it does not cover grass cutting. This is organized by Residents Committees but there are supports to help in this respect and such committees should log onto the Tipperary County Council site and register with the PPN.
