Wicklow County Council started work on flattening a site for temporary accommodation in Blackberry Lane, Delgany in complete secrecy and refuses to explain what it is doing. There was planning permission for 22 senior citizen houses but this has expired. Bord Pleanala imposed conditions that stated that before the site was developed:
An archaeologist had to be employed, the boundary treatment with a close house had to be detailed, trees had to be protected with fencing, footpath details agreed, all before development started. None of this has been done. The Council, of all people, should not be bulldozing all over the site and the Bords conditions.
I have asked that work stops until these issues are resolved and planning permission is granted.
