Sinn Féin Councillor Pearse McGeough has welcomed the decision for two estates in Castlebellingham to be ‘taken in charge’.
At last week’s Ardee Municipal Meeting it was agreed that Bellingham Green and Bellingham Close would be taken over by the local authority.
Cllr McGeough said “Now that Louth County Council have taken the estates in charge, home owners and residents can now access all the services and protections that their taxes pay for. I know of one estate that in 2014 had its street lights turned off because the developer in cahrge of the estate hadn’t paid its electricity bills. Having your estate ‘taken in charge’ is advantageous to the home-owner.”
