COMHAIRLE CONTAE FHINE GALL
FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL
BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING
(Services B – Strategic & General Matters)
THURSDAY 11th APRIL 2019
ITEM NO. 43
Question: Councillor B. Dennehy - Taken in Charge of Dooroge Estate,
"To ask the Chief Executive to outline the timelines and actions
planned to take place that will see Dooroge Wood Estate, Ballyboughal
be taken in charge by Fingal County Council, where the sewage system
and other services in the estate are taken over and aided by the
plebiscite previously submitted?"
A plebiscite for Doorogue Woods was just submitted in March.
With the exception of water services infrastructure Doorogue Woods is
completed to an acceptable standard except for a couple of minor items
which can be addressed.
However, it has a temporary pumping station which was planned to be
removed when the development connected by gravity to the foul sewer
system. The Developer has recently attempted to negotiate with the
adjacent land owner and at this time it is cost prohibitive for him to install
the gravity main.
Irish Water is currently engaging to resolve these significant outstanding
issues with the services.
