‘Dis­con­cert­ing’ no up­date on Ard Deal­gan

The Argus - - NEWS -

A pub­lic rep­re­sen­ta­tive has de­scribed as ‘dis­con­cert­ing’ that of­fi­cials will not be giv­ing up­dates on the ren­o­va­tion of the Ard Deal­gan apart­ments in Quay Street.

In a writ­ten re­port, the coun­cil said the project be­ing un­der­taken by the Túath Hous­ing Agency is at the CPO stage, and a fea­si­bil­ity study is un­der­way.

This prompted Cllr. Anne Camp­bell to ask who is do­ing the fea­si­bil­ity study, when it will be com­pleted, and what’s it for.

How­ever, Aoife Lawler, se­nior ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, said, while the project ‘is at a very ad­vanced stage’, it is a pri­vate body ren­o­vat­ing the build­ing.

‘It is com­mer­cially sen­si­tive, and I am not go­ing to give up­dates at coun­cil meet­ings.’

The of­fi­cial did re­veal there will be less units in the block, as the num­ber of two-bed­room apart­ments will be in­creased.

Cllr. Conor Kee­lan re­marked it is dis­con­cert- ing Ms. Lawlor could not give a fuller re­sponse about progress.
