Dun Laoghaire Councillor, Cormac Devlin has welcomed the complete transformation of the former Cumberland Inn site, Cumberland Street following representations he made in 2011. "This prominent location at the entrance to Dún Laoghaire town looks much better than it did 6 months ago. Local residents and businesses will be pleased with the improvements made" said Cllr Devlin.
This site has been vacant for many years now and had steadily fallen into decay. Cllr. Devlin has pursued this issue over these years however only minor, remedial works were carried out during that time. Then in the summer of 2011, he requested the Council to investigate this site under the Derelict Sites Act 1990. The Council did so and as a result it has completely transformed. Cllr Devlin thanked all concerned for responding to the concerns of the local residents;
Motion: Councillor Cormac Devlin
That the Manager up-dates members on what, if any, up-date has been received from the owner of the former Cumberland Inn Public House and what this Council proposes to do to ensure that this site is cleaned up as per this Councillor’s request
in late 2011
Agents for the owner of the former Cumberland Inn have contacted the Council to confirm that all works required to render this property non derelict have been carried out. The site has now been declared non-derelict and will be removed from the
Council’s Derelict Sites Register upon receipt of levies due.
