Coun­cil agrees to dis­posal of land

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

FUR­THER in­for­ma­tion was sought over a cou­ple of dis­pos­als of coun­cil land which came be­fore the elected mem­bers for con­sid­er­a­tion on Mon­day.

All coun­cil­lors agreed to the dis­posal of Wick­low County Coun­cil’s free­hold in­ter­est in 75 O’Byrne Road, Bray to Whil­helmina Cox, 75, O’Byrne Road, Bray

It was also agreed by all mem­bers to dis­pose of 1.9 acres in In­chanappa, Ash­ford to John Fitz­patrick, In­chanappa, Ash­ford.

How­ever, ques­tions were raised over the dis­posal of prop­erty known as 4 Bath Street, Wick­low town to Au­gus­tus Cullen as le­gal personal rep­re­sen­ta­tive of An­nie Car­roll, de­ceased.

Cllr Shay Cullen queried: ‘The new map we have been pro­vided with has an ex­tra piece of land in­cluded which wasn’t on the orig­i­nal map. Is there a change in the val­u­a­tion?’

Se­nior Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Lor­raine Gal­lagher replied that there was no change in the val­u­a­tion as a slight change to the boundaries didn’t change any of the specifics.

Cllr Tom For­tune said he would be ab­stain­ing from the vote as he didn’t know enough about it. A de­ci­sion on the dis­posal was de­layed un­til later in the meet­ing when it was re­vealed that a map­ping er­ror was the rea­son for the dif­fer­ence in the two maps. The dis­posal was passed.

Cllr Christopher Fox also noted a dis­crep­ancy over the map pro­vided regarding the dis­posal of 1.27 acres in Glen­cap Com­mons North, Clen­cap to Michael and Maura Ro­nan of Sym­phony House, Kil­macanogue. Again a map­ping er­ror was re­spon­si­ble and the dis­posal was agreed.
