Council Called On To Consider CPOs On Derelict Buildings In Town

James Street.

THERE was a call for the Council to do something about two derelict buildings on James Street which one councillor called a disgrace.

Cllr Terry O’Brien had a motion before the meeting of Tralee Municipal District on Tuesday, asking Kerry County Council to take action under the derelict sites act to address issues surrounding the two houses on the street.

He said they were a disgrace and an eyesore and something had be done about them.

The Council in reply said there are Derelict Sites files open on the two properties in James Street, which are being progressed by the Operations Department.

Cllr Toireasa Ferris said derelict and neglected properties in general were a problem in town.

She asked the Council to provide a report on properties that have been served dereliction notice at the next meeting of the municipal district and start CPOs on some of the properties. She suggested these properties could then be renovated and used for social housing.

    Good-on the Council, it needs to act on all derelict properties in the greater Tralee urban area.
